Xiaopeng completed his undergraduate study majoring in materials science at Shandong University in China in 2011. In 2014, he obtained his master’s degree at Renmin’s University of China, doing a research on functional polymer microstructures under the supervision of Prof. Yapei Wang. He completed his PhD study from EPFL Switzerland in 2019, working on the controllable synthesis of low-dimensional semiconductor nanocrystals under the supervision of Prof. Martin Gijs. He joined the DOH group with a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) early-postdoc mobility fellowship. His work is focusing on heterogeneous photocatalysis using hybrid 2D nanomaterials.

Outside the lab, he enjoys reading, traveling, cooking, playing Ping-Pong and playing cards with friends.
