Fan Yang is an Associate Professor and PI in ShanghaiTech University, China. He received his B.S. in Chemistry from Peking University and Ph.D. in Chemistry from Texas A&M University, under the guidance of Prof. D. Wayne Goodman. After working as a research associate in Brookhaven National Laboratory with Prof. Jose Rodriguez and Prof. Dario Stacchiola, he joined Prof. Xinhe Bao's division as a faculty member in State Key Laboratory of Catalysis at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012 and later joined ShanghaiTech University in December 2019. Currently, he also serves as the director of Analytical Instrumentation Center. His research interest is in the fields of surface science and catalysis, and currently focusing on atomic-scale studies of model systems for the metal-oxide interface and supported oxide catalysts, as well as the development of scanning probe microscopy and infrared techniques for operando studies of nanostructured surfaces and interfaces.


Professor Fan Yang dedicated his research on atomic and molecular level studies of catalytic processes at nanostructured surfaces and interfaces, and to achieve the rational design of catalytic systems, his research group has combined the approaches of ultra-high vacuum (UHV) surface chemistry, in-situ/operando catalytic characterization, and reaction kinetics of model catalysts. Specifically, we construct and explore atomically precise model catalytic systems that could represent the characteristics of practical catalysts. We also develop high-resolution scanning probe-based techniques and operando dynamic research methods to achieve atomic-scale resolution and dynamic tracking of active sites in working catalysts. Our recent research focuses on the role of metal-oxide interfaces and supported clusters in both thermal catalysis and electrocatalysis. In the past five years, Prof. Yang has published over 50 SCI papers in research journals such as Nat. Commun., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., ACS Catal., and Energy Environ. Sci. He has also contributed book chapters to RSC Catalysis book series and Modern Catalytic Research Methods (graduate textbook). He has received various awards including GRC Young Investigator Award, National Innovation Medalist Team Award, etc. He has been the principal investigator or participated in several research projects from National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and Ministry of Science and Technology of China. He is currently serving as a young editor/editorial board member for journals such as Acta Chimica Sinica,Chemical BulletinSurface Science & Technology,Nano Materials Science, Catalysts,Results in Surfaces and Interfaces, etc. He has previously served as the secretary-general of Chinese Catalysis Society, academic secretary in organizing the 16th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC 16), co-chair of Solid Surface Chemistry and Heterogeneous Catalysis subconference at the 32nd Annual Meeting of Chinese Chemical Society, and jointly organized the 5th National Symposium on Surface Physical Chemistry.

Our research group is actively seeking applications for positions including Research Professor, Research Associate, Postdoctoral Fellows, Graduate and Undergraduate Students. We offer competitive salaries and compensations, and an excellent working environment. We welcome motivated students and scholars who are interested in conducting cutting-edge research in the fields of catalysis and surface science to join us! Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Fan Yang directly via email.
