Xin Fang joined Erwin Reisner's lab as a PhD student funded by CSC-Cambridge Trust scholarship in October 2015. His PhD research focuses on semi-artificial photosynthesis, an emerging strategy that brings together strengths of biocatalysis, synthetic materials and artificial toolsets to produce fuels and value-added chemicals with renewable energy source. Before this, Xin Fang received his master's degree in macromolecular chemistry and physics from Fudan University (Shanghai, China) in 2015 and a bachelor's degree in polymer materials science and engineering from Sichuan University (Chengdu, China) in 2012.
