Pingyun Feng, Associate editor
University of California, Riverside, USA
Pingyun Feng received her PhD from Department of Chemistry, University of California, Santa Barbara. After two years of postdoctoral study at Department of Chemical Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara, She joined Department of Chemistry, University of California at Riverside. She is now a full Professor at UCR. Feng’s research focuses on the synthesis, structure, characterization and application of various types of functional solid-state materials for energy and environmental applications. These materials range from porous metal-organic framework materials for carbon capture and fuel storage to high-surface area semiconductors based on metal chalcogenides and band-gap engineering of metal oxides that are currently under study for solar energy conversion through photocatalytic water splitting. Her group has published about 180 peer-reviewed scientific papers. Her accomplishments have been recognized by a number of awards including the Beckman Young Investigator Award, Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award.
