Kai Zhang

Kai Zhang did his undergraduate and master study in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cologne. He completed his PhD in 2010 under the supervision of Professor Bernd Tieke in Cologne, and also in the group of Professor Peter Skabara at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK, working on novel conjugated polymers.  From 2011 to 2013, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Markus Antonietti at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam. In the beginning of 2013 he joined the MPI-P as a group leader in the department of Professor Katharina Landfester. His research activity is mainly focused on photo- or electroactive porous polymer materials for catalytic studies.
