Dr Nao DuanDr. Nao Duan

I am Xinping (Nao) Duan, an academic visitor at Wolfson Catalysis Laboratory, heading by Prof. Edman Tsang. I received my Ph.D. degree in Industrial Catalysis from the Dalian University of Technology, concentrating on hydrotreating processes over novel phosphides catalysts. Thereafter, I joined in Prof. Youzhu Yuan’s Group rooted in the National Engineer Laboratory (NEL) for Green Chemicals Production as a full-time researcher at Xiamen University. On the basis of applied and practical catalysis, my research in Prof. Tsang’s group is focused on the study of highly efficient catalyst for CO2 conversion to higher alcohols and hydrocarbons. During my spare time, I am interested in playing basketball and jogging.
