Assistant Professor Department of Chemistry Research Group
Feng Yang received his B.S. degree from Shandong University in 2011 and Ph.D. degree in chemistry under Prof. Yan Li at Peking University in 2017. He worked as a visiting Ph.D student in Prof. Shigeo Maruyama's group at The University of Tokyo in 2016. He subsequently held the National Postdoctoral Program for Innovative Talents Fellowship and worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Yan Li's group until October 2019. Then he joined the faculty of Southern University of Science and Technology as an Assistant Professor (PI).
His interests mainly include the chirality controlled growth of carbon nanotubes and mechanism, catalyst design, in-situ environmental TEM and XAFS study on nanocrystals and growth process of nanomaterials. These work have been published on Nature, Chem. Rev., Acc. Chem. Res., J. Am. Chem. Soc., CCS Chem., ACS Nano. The work published in Nature was selected by ACS Chemical&EngineeringNews as "Top 10 Chemistry Research of 2014”. He has received awards including Top 10 Innovation Award for National Postdoctoral Program for Innovative Talents Fellowship (2020), Iijima Award (2018), NT18-Best Young Scientist Award (2018), Honorable Mention for IUPAC Award for Young Chemists (2017), Natural Science Award of Chinese Ministry of Education, the 1st Grade (2/7) (2017). He was also invited to attend the 65th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Germany.
