Dr. Meng Sun is an associate professor at Tsinghua University, School of Environment. He received his B.S. and M.S. in Environmental Engineering at Jilin University, China, and received his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering at the Research Center for Eco-Environmental Science (RCEES), Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2016. During his doctoral research, he was mentored by Prof. Jiuhui Qu and conducted studies on developing advanced electrochemical technologies for water purification and reuse. In order to elucidate electrochemical interfacial mass transfer, Dr. Meng Sun joined Prof. Jinghong Li’s group at Tsinghua University, Department of Chemistry. During that time, he was well trained in electroanalytical chemistry and nanoscopic electrochemistry. His research interest gradually shifted to innovative electrochemical processes for water treatment and resource recovery. To further broaden his research to interdisciplinary technology integration, Meng Sun joined Prof. Elimelech’s group as an associate researcher at Yale University and focused on the development of next-generation electrified membrane materials and processes at the water-energy nexus.
Dr. Meng Sun has authored more than 50 refereed journal publications in the fields of environments, energy, nanotechnology, and chemistry, including research and invited review articles in Nature Communication, Environ. Sci. Technol. Environ. Sci. Tech. Let., Adv. Energy Mater., Adv. Funct. Mater., and Nano Today, and is co-author of two books. By July 2022, these publications have gained a total citation of over 3000 times in Google Scholar (H index 27). Found on his research interests, Dr. Meng Sun has held six Chinese and international patents.
