Speaker: Dong Guangbin
Guangbin Dong received his B.S. degree from Peking University and completed his Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Stanford University with Professor Barry M. Trost, where he was a Larry Yung Stanford Graduate fellow. In 2009, he began to research with Professor Robert H. Grubbs at California Institute of Technology, as a Camille and Henry Dreyfus Environmental Chemistry Fellow. In 2011, he joined the department of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor and a CPRIT Scholar. Since 2016, he has been a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Chicago. His research interests lie in the development of powerful chemical tools for addressing important questions in the science field.
Host: Zhu Rong
After receiving his B.S. degree from Peking University in 2010, Rong Zhu did his Ph.D. study at MIT, where he worked on transition metal catalysis and radical chemistry in the lab of Prof. Steve Buchwald. Between 2015-2018, he performed postdoctoral research with Prof. Tim Swager on chemical sensors, responsive polymers, and anion recognition. Rong started his independent career at College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, Peking University in March 2018. His research interests involve catalysis and functional polymer materials.
