Dr Chunping Chen joined the O’Hare group in June 2013. She received her PhD from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore in 2013, working on design and development of functional layered double hydroxide nanomaterials for advanced applications under the supervision of Prof. Rong Xu. Currently, she is an SCG Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford and Programme Manager for functional materials within the SCG-Oxford Centre of Excellence in Chemistry (CoE). Her research interests include the design of functional materials for sustainable chemistry, green energy and CO2 capture and utilization.
