Research interests
Dr Min Hong is a research fellow at the Centre for Future Materials, University of Southern Queensland. He received his PhD from University of Queensland in June 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Jin Zou and Prof. Zhi-Gang Chen. His PhD thesis was selected as the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Higher Degree by Research Thesis. During his PhD, he received the Graduate School Travel Award and visit Prof. Jeff Snyder’s group in the Northwestern University, US. After his PhD, he continued a one-year postdoctoral research in Prof. Jin Zou’s group at UQ. In October 2017, he moved to USQ as a research fellow. His research focuses on thermoelectric materials, understanding the transporting mechanism and electron microscopy characterizations. To date, he has contributed to 38 articles, 14 as first author, in top-ranking journals such as Advanced Materials (IF = 21.950), Advanced Energy Materials (IF = 21.875), Journal of the American Chemical Society (IF = 14.357), Nano Letter (IF = 12.080), ACS Nano (IF = 13.709), and Nano Energy (IF = 13.120).
