Biochemical expert, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. He graduated from Chemical Industry Department of Tsinghua University in 1986. He got his doctorate from Tsinghua University in 1993. Now he is a professor and the president of Beijing University of Chemical Technology.
He mainly engaged in biochemical research, conducted a lot of research on lipase and enzyme-catalyzed synthetic chemicals, and realized the production of lipase for organic synthesis and the application of enzyme-catalyzed industrial catalysis. A new method of fermentation amplification based on marker metabolite control was established and used in the industrial production of yeast fermentation products. A new industrial application process for comprehensive utilization of fermentation waste mycelium was developed by him. He has won more than 30 invention patents at home and abroad, published more than 200 papers in SCI and more than 200 in EI. He won two second prizes for national technological inventions and four first prizes for provincial and ministerial scientific and technological progress (the first finisher). He won the Heliang Heli Science and Technology Innovation Award, Tan Jiazhen Life Science Award, YABEC Award for Outstanding Contribution to Asian Youth Biotechnology, and etc. He is titled the national teaching masters and has trained more than 100 doctoral and master graduate students.
Academician of the Australian Academy of Science and Technology Engineering, Scientia Professor of Science of the University of New South Wales(UNSW), and the highest honor of the Australian National Science and Technology Bureau, namely, ARC Laureate Fellow.
Research fields: basic chemistry research, applied chemical engineering research, material science research, photochemical nanomaterial research and other technical fields. At present, the focus of research is to design and develop nanomaterials that can convert solar energy into chemical energy, mainly including nanomaterials that purify water and air by photocatalysis, ultra-low temperature solar catalysts, and solar catalytic conversion systems.
Achievements: successfully attracted US $ 25 million in research funds from the Australian Research Council and its cooperative enterprises for the University of New South Wales in Australia (Australian Research Council Center for Excellent Nanomaterials, Australian Research Council Academic Awards, 6 Australian Research Council Science Discovery Funds, 9 Australian Research Council Industrialization Funds, 8 Australian Research Council Donations, 3 Australian Research Council International Funds). By September 2016, more than 290 papers had been published, with a total citation of 10,900 times and a high citation index of 58.
She was named Australia's 100 most influential engineers between 2012-2015, Exxon Mobil Award (2012), Judy Rapper Award (2012), UNSW Science and Engineering Award (2011), UNSW Science Professor in Australia (2009), Frishers Award (2008) and UNSW Excellent Research Supervision Award in Australia (2003).
A doctorate in Materials Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as a postdoctoral researcher, the University of Queensland, Australia, he currently serves as senior lecturer at the University of New South Wales, Australia and university scientific researcher of UNSW. He was appointed as UNESCO scientific researcher in November 2017.
His research fields include photocatalysis technology, particle catalysis, and new energy storage materials. He is committed to exploring new two-dimensional materials. As project leader, he has obtained more than A$ 3
