Chemical engineering welcomes new faculty member, Xueyi Zhang
This semester, The Department of Chemical Engineering welcomes Xueyi Zhang as an assistant professor.
Zhang is currently teaching CH E 480W Chemical Engineering Laboratory.
Zhang received a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, and a doctoral degree in chemical engineering from the University of Minnesota, where he focused on zeolites and their applications in gas separation and catalysis.
Most recently, he has completed postdoctoral training at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, working in the field of heterogeneous catalysis.
Zhang's research interests include advanced porous materials for clean energy sources, including: porous materials synthesis, heterogeneous catalysis, gas separation, and microscopy.
