Fengling Bian

Ph.D., Associate Professor


Fengling Bian received her B.S. degree from Lanzhou University in 1994. She then joined Prof. Jingjia Wu’s group at Lanzhou University to conduct research on degradable starch as a graduate student. After she got a M.S. degree in 1997, She join the faculty of Department of Chemistry, Lanzhou University in 1997, and since then has been engaged in teaching and scientific research on polymer science. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in 2003 after three years’ research on thermosensitive polymers and hydrogels under the supervision of Prof. Mingzhu Liu. From October 2003 to November 2004, she studied at Yeungnam University in South Korea as a postdoctoral research fellow, working on metallocene catalysts in Prof. Seok Kyun Noh’ group. She was promoted to associate professor in 2008. Her current research interest is on the development of polymer-supported noble metal catalysts.
