Profile

Dr. Yan Gao, Associate professor, Doctoral supervisor.

Yan Gao was born in May 1977, Changchun City, Jinlin Province, China. He got his bachelor degree in 2000, application chemistry major in DUT; And he got his PhD in 2007, application chemistry major in DUT; Then he worked in Stockholm University as a postdoctoral fellow in organic chemical department from May 2007 to July 2009. After that, he came back to DUT as a lecturer until Dec. 2014, and then he got an associate professor position. 
   Yan Gao is working on artificial photosynthesis, development of new catalysts for water oxidation and carbon dioxide reduction; Researching in the mechanism of O-O bond formation; Assembly of molecular devices for electrochemical and photoelectrochemical water splitting and carbon dioxide reduction. Based on these research contents, he has published more than 40 papers (cited>900) in the high level international journals from 2013, such as J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., ACS Catal., ChemSusChem, and so on.
