Ping specialises in post-synthetic modification of Metal-Organic Frameworks and their derivatives

Ping Cheng is currently investigating the effects of surface functional groups and surface morphology on the performance of Metal-Organic Frameworks and their derived porous carbon materials in the fields of adsorption, catalysis and sensors

Ping finished the Bachelor of Bio-engineering at AnHui University ( China) in 2017 and finish the Master of Biotechnology in 2019.

Then after half-year Research Assistance in the Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), he joined Prof. Yamauchi's group a PhD student in July 2020.
