Personal profile

Biography

Yijiao is the Chair of Macquarie University (MQ) Women in Engineering, Co-Direactor of MQ-Jilin University Joint Research Centre for Green Catalysis, and Chief Investigator of ARC Industrial Transformation Research Hub (ITRH) and MQ Sustainable Energy Research Centre. Since joining MQ as a Senior Lecturer in 2014, she has secured competitive research grants from the ARC ITRH, Rio Tinto, JITRI, ARC DPs, the EU H2020 etc. Currently Yijiao is leading a research group with 1 ARC DECRA Fellow, 1 postdoc, 5 PhD students and a number of UG thesis students. Her research interests mainly focus on the development of better thermal-, photo-, and electro-catalytic systems for green chemical processes, renewable energy production 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. She is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering and Carbon Capture Science and Technology (Elsevier). She has been a Guest Editor of the ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, Catalysis Today, and Journal of Physical Chemistry C.
