About Jenny Zhang (UK)
Jenny is a Marie Curie International Post-Doctoral Fellow in the research group of Dr Erwin Reisner at the University of Cambridge. She works on developing the basic science behind artificial photosynthesis by combining natural bio-catalysts with earth-abundant metal oxides.
Specifically, she is improving the electronic ‘wiring’ between the water-oxidation enzyme, photosystem II, and nano-structured metal oxide electrodes to set benchmarks in water-splitting rates for synthetic systems. This is important for inspiring more efficient and cost effective photocatalytic water-splitting systems, which would help to drive the realisation of hydrogen as a sustainable green fuel of the future.
