Dr. Jinlong Gong is a professor of chemical engineering at Tianjin University. He is best known for his work in the areas of heterogeneous catalysis, surface science, and hydrogen energy.
Dr. Gong received his B.S. degree from Tianjin University in 2001 and earned a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Under the tutelage of Buddie Mullins, Gong' graduate work focused on the understanding the surface oxidation reaction on gold-based model catalysts.
==Research at Harvard==
Professor Gong joined the George Whitesides' group at Harvard and completed his postdoctoral training in August of 2010. His research focuses on nanoindentation lithography and CO2 conversion based on one-electron mechanism.
==Research at Tianjin University==
Professor Gong is currently holding a Pei Yang Professorship at Tianjin University. He maintains an active research group of over 30 graduate and postdoctoral students with three research associate professors. According to the biography on his Web site, Gong' current research interests include catalytic synthesis and utilization of hydrogen as well as conversion of COx.
