Brief Biography

Heyou Zhang - Ph.D. in Chemistry

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Spectroscopy of Soft Matter Group (Prof. Dr. Jürgen Köhler), University of Bayreuth, Germany.
Ph.D. (2022) in chemistry, the University of Melbourne, Australia.(Prof. Paul Mulvaney)
M.Sc. (2016) in Chemistry, the University of Melbourne, Australia.(Prof. Paul Mulvaney)
B.Sc. (2013) in Chemistry, Wuhan University, China.(Prof. Shenli Chen)

My research interests are Nano Science, Nanocrystal Synthesis, Nanofabrication and Assembly, Single Crystal Spectroscopy and Catalysis.

I am also on Google Scholar ORCID ACEx ResearchGate
Beside science, I am interested in Photography, Travelling, Cocktail and Coffee, and Sports.


My Research Interests

Nanoscience - Nanocrystals.
Preparation, Fabrication, Characterization, Application.

I have wide interests in the study of Nanoscience. From the nanocrystals synthesis and functionalizaion. To single nanocrystal assembly and fabrication. In addtion with the study of optical and electrical properites. Plus basic theory study and numerical simulation. End up with the nanotechnologies in catalysis and sensing.

My current research is focused on the Direct Assembly of Single Nanocrystal Arrays by Electrophoretic Depostion.



Highlights of my works

Publications can not represent research, but they are the spotlight of your work.
Sincerely thanks to my graduate reaserch supervisors Prof. Paul Mulvaney and Prof. Ann Roberts, as well as my undergraduate supervisor Prof. Shengli Chen for their support and guidance.
Greatfully thanks to all my lovely colleagues and collaborators for helping me with the research and leting me be a part of their excellent project.

My Hobby Gallery

Photography; Travelling; Cocktail;
Coffee; Sport; Gaming

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
---George Bernard Shaw

I enjoy the time of reserach and I also enjoy the time of recreactions. Only I can play hard, I can worker harder.

Make a friend, Make a way.
