Dr. Jeffrey Poon 潘俊彥

  • Fellowship in 2019 at Fritz Haber Institute (Max Planck Institute)
  • Scholarship in 2015 at the University of Cambridge

Jeffrey Poon was born and raised in Hong Kong and continued to pursue his higher secondary education in the Kentish town of Tonbridge, where he enjoyed the boarding experience and opportunities there. He completed his first degree in Chemistry at the University of Oxford in 2015, at which he was a member of The Queen's College. He worked under the supervision of Prof. Richard G. Compton during his final year of his undergraduate degree (Part II). He investigated the electrochemical properties of carbonaceous nanomaterials such as graphene nanopletelets and spherical carbon nanoparticles, and their catalytic/electrocatalytic activities for various electrochemical reactions.

He completed his PhD studies in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Stuart M. Clarke at the University of Cambridge, specialising in the surface chemistry at the industrially-treated steel-paint interface. He is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, looking into electrochemistry interfaces with a surface chemistry-specific perspective.
