Now he is enrolled as a Ph.D. student in Prof. Zhang’s team and completed his qualifying exam and research proposal defense in early January 2021. His master and Ph.D. research both focused on the microwave enhanced membrane for PFOA degradation under funding support from NSF, EPA and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. His first-author journal article, “Influences of Microwave Irradiation on Performances of Membrane Filtration and Catalytic Degradation of Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA)”, was published by Environment International, a high-quality journal in the field. His infectious enthusiasms, independence and productivity inspire the surrounding people and colleagues. Congratulations to Dr. Fangzhou Liu! 

Jun. 2021: Professor Wen Zhang was invited to report for RCR seminar about seeking sustainable pathways for spend lithium-ion batteries.
