Zonghao is a Marie-Curie research fellow at LMGP. Her research interests focus on  the solid state oxides materials. She uses a combination of surface characterisation techniques as well as structural, electrochemical measurements and oxygen isotope-coupled techniques, to study mass transport in complex oxides, and surface and interfaces of the electrochemical devices, such as solid oxide cells, oxygen transport membranes, Li-ion batteries etc.

She currently works on the project: HORIZON-MSCA-2021-PF-01, project 101064349 NATFOX
Research on novel thin film oxygen electrodes for high performance reversible micro-Solid Oxide Cells (SOCs)
-- To produce (La,Pr)2NiO4+d thin films via a combination of MOCVD and ALD;
-- To understand the surface structure, surface chemistry and electrochemical behaviour of the deposited thin-films;
-- Development of the in situ isotopic exchange Raman spectroscopy (IERS) technique and apparatus;
-- To combine the conventional isotopic exchange depth profiling (IEDP)-SIMS and electrical conductivity relaxation (ECR) techniques with the novel IERS and TR-XRD to study the oxygen exchange and diffusion behaviour and mechanism in thin-films.
