Zihao Gao entered Nanjing University in 2013 and worked on zeolite since 2014. In 2017, he moved to the group of Prof. Junliang Sun in Peking University and in June he received his BSc degree. In 2018, he joined the group of Porous, Hybrid and Bio-hybrid Nanostructured Materials in Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM, CSIC) as a PhD candidate under the supervision of Prof. Miguel Camblor.
Zihao is working on the synthesis, structure characterization and modification of zeolite. His scientific interests lie on (1) the synthesis of novel and/or functional zeolite, (2) structure solutions of zeolite, (3) modification and post-treatment of as-made zeolite, and (4) mechanism study during the zeolite crystallization.
He is also the fan of Touhou Project and Japan Mahjong.
