Biography

Dr. Van Chuyen Pham has received his Ph.D. in nanomaterials chemistry from Materials research center, the University of Freiburg in 2015. Currently, he is working as a postdoctoral in the Laboratory for MEMs applications (Prof. Zengerle), the University of Freiburg. His current research interest is in the synthesis of heteroatom-doped graphene and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as metal-free catalyst for oxygen reduction reaction in polymer electrolyte fuel cells, and molybdenum sulphide as hydrogen evolution catalyst for water electrolysis. He has experience in fabrication of porous thin film of graphene and CNT based nanomaterials, synthesis of graphene sheets by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) method, and chemical synthesis of graphene oxide (GO) from graphite and reduction of GO by thermal and chemical treatments, and also functionalization of rGO and CNTs. He successfully used functional graphene as electron transport and acceptor to enhance the energy conversion efficiency of inorganic-polymer hybrid solar cells. He has authored 10 papers in peer-reviewed journals.
