PhD candidate in the Department of Chemistry
BS (Chemistry), BA (mathematics) – State University of New York at Binghamton, USA - 2016
- Fang was awarded the ACS outstanding graduating senior upon graduation from SUNY Binghamton. Her research focuses on converting renewable feedstocks such as lignin into value-added chemicals using a sustainable strategy- electrochemistry. Her work spans from fundamental (mechanistic studies of bond cleavage chemistry) to applied science (lignin valorization) by utilizing various instrumentations. She also did plenty of organic synthesis for molecular analogs and lignin dimers for modeling studies.
- Outside of the lab, Fang is a foodie, likes cooking and exploring different types of restaurants around. She is also an outdoor enthusiast, enjoys snorkeling, hiking, and skydiving.
