Having graduated from University of Science and Technology of China in 2012 with a BSc degree in Modern Mechanics, Binbin undertook his PhD research on batteries at the University of Hong Kong and completed it in 2017. Prior to joining ICL, he was a senior battery engineer in ASTRI Hong Kong, responsible for developing commercial Li-ion and Zn-ion batteries. His expertise lies in design, manufacturing and characterization of battery devices including Li-ion batteries, metal-air batteries and multivalent-ion batteries (Zn-ion, Al-ion and Al-air).
