Travel Award 2018
I am pleased to announce the winner of the Catalysts 2018 Travel Award, given to one outstanding PhD student. Shangqian Zhu, a PhD student in Minhua Shao’s research group at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, has been selected as the winner from a pool of 95 applicants.
Shangqian’s research focuses on the development of advanced catalysts and a fundamental understanding of CO2 electrochemical reduction and fuel cell reactions. Shangqian will be attending the Americas International Meeting on Electrochemistry and Solid State Science (AiMES)/The Electrochemical Society (ECS) 234th meeting in Cancun, Mexico.
Congratulations to Shangqian and thanks to all who applied.

Travel Award 2017
I am pleased to announce the winner of the inaugural Catalysts Travel Award, given to one outstanding post-doctoral researcher. The Travel Award for 2017 was granted to Michiel Dusselier, a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Bert Sel’s laboratory at KU-Leuven. Dr. Dusselier was selected from an applicant pool of 181 post-doctoral scholars.
Dr. Dusselier’s research focuses on new catalytic processes, functional bioplastics, and zeolite synthesis. He plans to attend the 7th FEZA conference in Sophia, Bulgaria to talk about his work on synthesis of novel zeolites.
Congratulations to Dr. Dusselier and thanks to all who applied.
