Yangchuan Xing, Department Associate Chair, Cramer W. LaPierre Professor
Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering
Yangchuan Xing is currently the Cramer W. LaPierre Professor and associate chair of the Department of Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering at the University of Missouri. His research interest lies in advanced functional materials and chemically reacting systems. His current research projects focus on sustainable manufacturing of materials for energy conversion and storage, electrochemical engineering and particle technology. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, Army Research Office, Air Force Research Laboratory and many industrial partners. He has taught both undergraduate and graduate courses covering transport phenomena, chemical reaction engineering, chemical engineering materials and chemical engineering design. He currently teaches Chemical Engineering Principles I and Advanced Heat and Momentum Transfer.
We are a research group interested in (1) understanding engineering sciences in chemically reacting systems involving catalytic reactions and transport phenomena, and (2) solving problems in advanced energy conversion and storage technologies. Our current research projects are focused on electrochemical and light energy conversion processes and sustainable chemical manufacturing.
We welcome all students, post-doctoral researchers and visiting scholars to join the group. Graduate students should have an undergraduate degree in an engineering or science major, with background knowledge in engineering, chemistry, physics and/or materials science.
