PhD Student, 2020 – Present
Xuefa Xia graduated Master of Material of Physics and Chemistry from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. During his master study, he focused on the structure modulation of perovskite Oxides and studied it’s catalytic performance on the oxide dehydrogenation of ethane.
From January 2021, he started his PhD study in the School of Chemistry, supervised by Professor John Irvine. His current research topic focuses on the optimization of nanoparticle emergence from perovskites. The emphasis of this project is to optimize catalytic performance of exsolution catalysts.
