Chao Yang was born in 1971 and received his Ph.D. and B.S. degrees in 1998 and 1993, respectively, both from Nanjing University of Technology, Nanjing, China. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Chemical Metallurgy, CAS, Beijing, China, from 1998 to 2000, and a Visiting Scientist at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA, from 2005 to 2006. He is the Leader of Computational Reaction Engineering Group and the Deputy Director of the Key Laboratory of Green Process and Engineering at the Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China. He has published about 140 papers in peer-reviewed journals and holds 30 patents and 8 computer software copyrights. Yang has received numerous honors and recognitions, including the China Chemistry Society–BASF Youth Innovation Prize in 2013, the Asia Research Award from the Society of Chemical Engineers, Japan, 2012, the National Award for Youth in Science and Technology, 2011, and the Second Prize of China State Natural Science Award and the First Prize of Technological Invention Award from China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Association, both in 2009. Yang was awarded the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars in 2010. His research interests include numerical and experimental study of multiphase flow and transport phenomena in various multiphase reactors such as stirred tanks, loop reactors, microreactors, and membrane reactors and modeling diagnosis and innovation of industrial chemical reactors, in addition to development of new technologies for high efficiency, clean, and comprehensive utilization of low-grade resources and pollution control of wastes.
