Yuran received her B.S. in Chemical Engineering and Industrial Biological Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2010. As an undergraduate, she worked in the Beijing Key Laboratory of Green Reaction Engineering and Technology and conducted research on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and mainly focused on synthesis of ultralong CNTs. At MIT, she continues her interests in material synthesis and catalysis. She is working on catalytic processing of biomass-derived carbohydrates, specifically on selective oxidation of biomass-based polyols.
