Nan Yi is an assistant professor of chemical engineering. He obtained his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Tufts University in 2012, where his research focused on energy and the environment, particularly designing robust and efficient catalysts for C1 molecules conversion such as methane and carbon dioxide. Beyond the lab, he is also interested in scientific teaching and curriculum development. His teaching passion started during a year long scientific teaching fellow program at Yale University, where he completed his postdoctoral research. His teaching methods are based on two concepts: student participation and student identification. Before coming to UNH in August 2015, he taught several courses at Yale, Tufts and WIT.
