Citation name

Xiang, Y.


Mississippi State University





Yizhi Xiang received his B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering (2005) and Ph.D. in Industrial Catalysis (2010) at Zhejiang University of Technology. From 2011 to Oct. 2016, he was appointed as a postdoctoral research associate at Université Libre de Bruxelles and Washington State University. Subsequently, he joined NICE America Research, Inc. as a scientist/project leader. Since August 2017, he started his independent research as an assistant professor at Mississippi State University. His research focuses on the kinetics and mechanisms of the heterogeneous catalytic systems that involved in the conversion of non-petroleum resources, such as natural gas, coal, and biomass to petrochemical feedstocks.
