Dr Xiaoxi Guo


Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoc Fellow

Room Number: Joseph Priestley building


I am Xiaoxi Guo, a chemical engineering researcher with educational background both in Materials Chemistry, Catalysis and Environmental Engineering. I have broad interests in functional materials in-situ characterization, and advanced oxidation process, and I am very keen to collaborate with both academic and industry to develop and transfer new knowledge and technology.


Research Interests:

  1. Design of high-performance catalysts by manipulating their wettability for water purification.
  2. Rational design of nanocatalysts for advanced oxidation process
  3. In situ/Operando characterization.publica
