Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

Dr Yunhong Jiang is a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow in the Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment (HBBE) at Northumbria University. He obtained a PhD in Biochemical Engineering at the University of Leeds. His postdoctoral experience included positions at University of Leeds, University of Bath, and University of Bristol. 

His research experience covered a wide range including, Microbial Cell and Materials Interactions, Antimicrobial Surfaces, Biological MOFs, Functional Living Materials, and Hygrothermal Performance of Living Construction Materials in Built Environment. Currently, his group works on developing thermally insulating materials based on environment-friendly or widely abundant raw materials with functional properties and investigating fundamental aspects of heat transfer including moisture-dependence. His collaborative projects have extensively involved between biologists, chemists and engineers.

He is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Microbiology Society, and a Certified Passive House Designer.
