Dr Sun became a Full Professor of Chemical Engineering at ECU in November 2017. Before he joined ECU in 2016 as an Associate Professor through the campaign of Vice-Chancellor’s Professorial Research Fellowship, he had worked at Curtin University for over seven years, beginning with a Research Fellow position (2009) to Curtin Research Fellow (2013) and then to Senior Research Fellow (2015). He remains an Adjunct Professor of Curtin University.
His research focuses on synthesis of nanostructured catalyst materials, such as shape-controlled metals or oxides, nanocarbons, arrays and quantum dots for solar energy utilization and environmental remediation. So far he has published over 130 refereed journal papers and received over 5600 citations and achieved an h-index of 45 (Data from Google Scholar in November 2017). He has also secured over three million dollars funding including three ARC discovery projects, four CRC projects and two fellowships. He serves as an Associate Editor of RSC Advances and Journal of Advanced Oxidation Technologies, assessor of ARC, committee member of international conferences, and referee of international journals.
A number of exciting research projects (PhD scholarships) are available at the moment. He welcomes others to join his group to make a difference in solar energy utilization and environmental nanotechnology..
