Welcome to Dr. Yang Xiao's Website

I investigate topics in biomass & shale gas conversion, and chemical & catalytic reaction engineering. The projects typically involve combined experimental and modeling studies. A few representative projects are as follows.

Research Projects

  • Shale gas utilization: non-oxidative coupling of methane (NOCM)
  • Catalytic bio-oil upgrading Low-temperature catalytic selective oxidation of methanol
  • Catalytic conversion of glycerol to liquid fuels/octane booster for gasoline
  • Density functional theory (DFT) calculations for Pt-Bi bimetallic catalysts
  • Catalytic bio-oil upgrading using hydrogen and methane as reductants
  • The bench-scale biodiesel production via heterogeneous catalytic process
