Edman TsangProfessor Inorganic Chemistry at Oxford University
Edman Tsang is a professor of Chemistry and Head of Wolfson Catalysis Centre at the University of Oxford, UK. His main research interests are on nanomaterials and catalysis concerning energy and environment which include developments of catalytic, photocatalytic and electrocatalytic technologies for fine chemicals, cleaner combustion, green chemistry, energy storages, processes and production, etc. Particular expertise is in design and architecture of nanocatalysts, which can lead to understanding of catalytic surfaces and interfaces. He has about 350 referred research publications including Nature, Science and Nature sister journals. He has delivered over 200 plenary and invited presentations at conferences, universities and companies. He has had extensively collaborations with chemical industries. He held a Distinguish Overseas Young Scientist Award from National Natural Science Foundation (NSFC-B award 2005) and Changjiang Scholar Award from Ministry of Education (B award 2007) and is a recipient of Global 1000 Talents visiting Award (B award 2014). He has won a number of international awards/recognitions including Royal Society University Fellowship (1995-2000); IChemE award on iAc innovation in catalysis (2005), IChemE NES Awards for Novel Engineering-shortlisted candidate (2008); Royal Society Kan Tong Po Professorship (2012); Royal Society Green Chemistry award (2012) and Royal Society Surfaces and Interfaces award (2013), etc. He serves as international panel members for a number of research councils and industries worldwide. He is an associate editor in Science Advances (Science sister journal); Editorial member of ChemCatChem (catalysis journal from VCH). Editorial member of Catalysis, Structure & Reactivity (CAT) from Maney (a new journal); IChemE: Catalysis Subject Group Committee and Member of the EPSRC College School.
