      Chang Li is a PhD candidate in the Department of Chemistry at University of Waterloo, under the supervision of Professor Linda F. Nazar. He received his bachelor’s degree from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2019. His current research focuses on developing novel electrolyte systems for Zn2+-exclusive intercalation cathodes and advanced anodes for aqueous zinc-ion batteries.
      Shuo Jin is a PhD candidate in the Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Cornell University, under the supervision of Professor Lynden Archer. He received his bachelor’s degree from South China University of Technology in 2018 and MS degree from Cornell University in 2020, both in chemical engineering. His current research focuses on understanding the effects of Zn electrodeposit crystallography on electrochemical reversibility of Zn anodes.
      Lynden Archer is the James A. Friend Family Distinguished Professor and Joseph Silbert dean of engineering at Cornell University. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and fellow of the American Physical Society and the Society of Rheology. His research focuses on fluid dynamics of simple and complex liquids at liquid solid interfaces, as well as their application for morphological control of battery anodes.
      Linda Nazar is a fellow of the Royal Society of London, an officer of the Order of Canada, and holds a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in solid state energy materials. She was awarded the Materials Research Society Medal in 2020 for her outstanding contributions to advanced materials design, synthesis, and characterization for energy storage, particularly Li battery technologies. Dr. Nazar carries out research in solid state chemistry/ionics, electrochemistry, and materials chemistry and has published more than 270 academic papers. Dr. Nazar is identified as a highly cited researcher (Web of Science; 2014–2021), with multiple highly cited papers that are defined as those ranking in the top 1% by citations for chemistry.
