Wenzhen’s graduate research focused on the development of novel chiral phosphine ligands for Ni-catalyzed asymmetric reductive couplings.


Wenzhen received his PhD from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry under the direction of Prof. Wenjun Tang. Prior to UCSB, Wenzhen was a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Marcus Tius and Prof. James Turkson at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
