Huiyan Zhang achieved his doctor degree at SoutheastUniversity in 2012. He completed one year (2009-2010) study at University of Massachusetts- Amherst as a co-joint PhD student under the guidance of Professor George W. Huber. The focus of his research is lignocellulosic biomass conversion into transportation fuels and chemicals through novel catalytic approaches. At present he is (co-)author of 3 international and 9 Chinese patents and over 30 papers including that published in Science, Energy & Environmental Science, Green Chemistry, Bioresource Technology and so on. The total impact factor of his first author papers is about 60. His work has been cited more than 600 times (Google Scholar Citations), the maximum citing time of his first author papers is more than 100.
