Dr. Yixiang Wang received his BSc in Chemistry and Doctoral degree in Polymer Chemistry and Physics from Wuhan University, China. Following a post-doctoral fellowship at University of Alberta, Dr. Wang worked there as a Research Associate from 2012 to 2017, and joined McGill University in 2018. Dr. Wang conducts research related to the fabrication of natural polymer-based nano/micro particles, nano/micro fibers, composite films, and hydrogels, and the understanding of relationship between molecular structure and functional properties. The overall aim is to explore a systematic approach to develop value-added applications of natural polymers in functional food and biodegradable materials.
