Ying Yang

Ph.D., Professor


Professor Ying Yang was born in June 1964. He graduated from Lanzhou University in 1983 with a major in inorganic chemistry and received his doctor of science degree in 1997. He has been lecturer, associate professor and professor successively. In 2011, he was selected as the doctoral supervisor. Main research directions: 1. Synthesis and application of inorganic functional complexes; 2. Separation and analysis in the process of hydrometallurgy. He has published more than 70 research papers and obtained 10 authorized invention patents. And Professor Yang has solved many production technical problems for a number of nonferrous metallurgy enterprises.
