Biography

Yijiao is currently a Chief Investigator at Macquarie University (MQ) Energy and Environmental Research Centre and ARC Research Hub for Computational Particle Technology. After completing her PhD at University of Stuttgart (Germany), she worked as postdoc at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich) from 2008 to 2010. Yijiao was awarded UNSW Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in 2011 and ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award in 2012, which was jointly hosted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Since August 2014 she is leading a dynamic research group with 1 visiting professor and 7 PhD students. She has secured ca. AUD$4m in research grants from ARC Research Hub with industrial partners (Rio Tinto and JITRI), ARC DP etc. Yijiao’s research interests mainly focus on the development of better catalytic/photocatalytic systems for green chemical processes, renewable energy and environmental protection. She has developed various in situ and operando spectroscopic techniques including NMR, EPR, IR, UV-Vis and Raman for achieving breakthroughs in catalysis research. 

Research Interest
