AWDr Anqi Wang is currently a postdoc researcher working on the ERC Starting grant on design and synthesis of polymer membranes for energy applications. He received his BEng degree in Chemical Engineering and Technology at Zhejiang University (Hangzhou, China) in 2016, and received MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering with Distinction in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. His PhD research project was focused on the design and synthesis of polymers of intrinsic microporosity (PIMs) for battery energy storage. Anqi just started his postdoc research on 1st August 2021.
