Research Experience:

Dr. Jiayang Liu studied Bioengineering at Nanjing Agricultural University in 2002 to 2006, and then continued his study and research work at Jiangnan University and received his Doctorate in 2013, majoring in Fermentation Engineering. Through 2011 to 2012, and 2017-2018 he got chance to study abroad at University of Georgia twice as visiting PhD student and Postdoc. He is now a faculty at Nanjing Tech University as associate professor. Since 2012, he has over 20 peer reviewed publications in English and 15 in Chinese. He also serves as reviewer for journal Bioresource Technology, Journal of Cleaner Production, Carbohydrate Polymers, etc. His research focuses on useful enzymes (e.g., laccase) production via fermentation technology and putting them into environmental application, such as phenolic organic pollutants degradation and removal from water. Some of these enzymes can be used in pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass to delignify for improved saccharification in biofuel area. In the past five years, he completed several natural and provincial funded research projects as Principle Investigator.
