Huamin Wang joined PNNL in 2011 after completing his postdoctoral researches at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and U.C. Berkeley with Prof. E. Iglesia in 2011 and at ETH Zurich, Switzerland with Prof. R. Prins in 2008. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry and his B.S. in Chemistry in 2006 and 2001, respectively, from Nankai University, China. He has experience in studies of reaction mechanisms and kinetics of catalytic hydrotreating (HDS and HDN) reactions on metal and sulfide surfaces, hydrogen management during hydrotreating catalysis, as well as catalyst development and characterization. His research in PNNL involves catalytic pyrolysis of biomass and catalytic hydrotreating and upgrading of bio-oil during transformation of biomass to fuels and chemicals.
