Congratulations to Guanghua Ye for his prestigious new position as Te Ping Associate Professor at ECUST

22 June 2018

We are delighted to announce that Dr Guanghua Ye, former PhD researcher in the Nature Inspired Chemical Engineering group at UCL’s CNIE, was appointed to Te Ping Associate Professor at the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) in Shanghai, one of China’s top chemical engineering departments.  

For several years, there has been a very fruitful collaboration between the State Key Laboratory for Chemical Engineering at ECUST (including Prof Xing-Gui Zhou and Prof Kake Zhu) and the group of Prof Marc-Olivier Coppens, which was intensified after Guanghua’s stay at UCL in 2014-2015 and has already led to 7 joint journal articles and one book chapter. 

We congratulate Dr Guanghua Ye with his prestigious new position, and wish him all the best for the future!
