Dapeng Cao acts as a Professor and Director at the Laboratory of Molecular and Materials Simulation at the Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT), China. He received his Ph.D. degree from BUCT, Beijing, China, in 2002, and served as a Research Scientist at NanoMaterials Technology Pte. Ltd. in Singapore (2002-2003) and a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California at Riverside, USA (from 2003 to 2005). His research interests are focused on the multiscale simulating design of functional materials and experimental synthesis of these designed materials, including polymer-based functional materials and porous adsorbents such as single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT), covalent-organic and metal-organic frameworks (COF and MOF). The emphasis is placed on the clean energy applications of the designed and synthesized new materials, including H2 storage, CO2 capture, and optoelectronic application. He has published more than 140 articles in journals such as Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Nano Letters, and ACS Nano.
