HUANG Zhongxing  黄重行

Principal Investigator


Zhongxing was born and raised in Shanghai, China. He obtained his B.Sc. degree from Peking University in 2012 under the supervision of Professor Jianbo Wang and Yan Zhang. He conducted his graduate study in the laboratory of Professor Guangbin Dong at the University of Texas, Austin (2012-2016), and University of Chicago (2016-2017). His research in the Dong group focused on the development of a new palladium-catalyzed redox cascade for the direct β-functionalization of ketones. Upon the completion of his Ph.D. thesis, he joined the laboratory of Professor Barry M. Trost at Stanford University as a postdoctoral fellow and studied the cycloaddition reactions involving Pd-heteroallyl intermediates. In August 2019, Zhongxing joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor.
