Tiesheng Wang


PhD Candidate in Materials Science and Sensor Technologies (Darwin College)




MRes, Sensor Technologies and Applications - University of Cambridge (Darwin College)

BEng, Materials Science and Engineering - Imperial College London



Tiesheng Wang (王铁胜) is currently developing materials under nano-confinement and multifunctional materials with interpenetrating structures that can benefit sensing, energy storage, and catalysis. He is under the supervision of Professor R. Vasant Kumar and Dr Stoyan K. Smoukov and working closely with Professor Anthony K. Cheetham. Tiesheng is funded by China Scholarship Council (CSC) scholarship. He is also affiliated with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications.
