On March 22nd, 2017, PROTECT Visiting Scholar Wei Zhou was awarded a second place prize for a poster he presented at MIT Water Night, an event hosted annually by MIT Water Club. Each year, this event brings together researchers and industry professionals in the Boston area and provides them with a platform to present their latest water-related achievements.

 During the event, Wei introduced his research on H2O2 electrogeneration by RVC foam cathodes and Ti/MMO anode in static and flow-through reactors. In addition, he joined other PROTECT team members in presenting on recent collaborative water-based efforts the group has been making.

 Wei Zhou is a third-year PhD student from the School of Energy Science and Engineering, Harbin Institute of Technology, P. R. China. He works in the lab of Prof. Akram Alshawabkeh as a visiting PhD student, a commitment which will last a total of 24 months. At Northeastern, his research focus is H2O2 electrogeneration by carbonaceous electrodes and green modification of carbonaceous electrodes.
