Jirui Zhang


Jirui lived in Zhuhai, China and graduated from the Hainan University in 2017 with B.Eng degree of Applied Chemistry, the final project focused on synthesis and characterization of the incorportion of Sb into Nano-SnO2 in Aloe extract bio-friendly media under Prof. Yunzhi Fu. In September 2018, she finished her master project “Polymer encapsulated nanocomposites materials” supervised by Prof. David Haddleton and Dr. Chaoying Wan in the University of Warwick. In October 2018, Jirui joined and commenced her PhD studies in the Haddleton group, focusing on polymerization and dericitization of bio-renewable diene monomers.
