Dr. Hong-Gang Cheng


Hong-Gang grew up in Jiangxi Province, China, and received his Ph.D. degree under the supervision of Professor Wen-Jing Xiao from Central China Normal University in 2014. His doctoral work focused on the design of chiral sulfoxide ligands and their applications in asymmetric catalysis. He joined Professor Shu Kobayashi’s group as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Tokyo and worked there for one year. Then he worked as a Research Associate in Professor Qianghui Zhou’s group at Wuhan University from February 2016. Hong-Gang joined the Schoenebeck group in May 2018.
