We are delighted to welcome Professor Xiulian Pan and Professor Ken-ichi Shimizu as our newest Catalysis Science & Technology Associate Editors.
Xiulian Pan is a full professor and a group leader at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP), the Chinese Academy of Sciences. She obtained her Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Guoxing Xiong from DICP in 2001. After a postdoctoral research stage at the Fraunhofer Institute of Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology in Stuttgart, she joined Prof. Xinhe Bao’s team at DICP in 2003.
Her research interests include fundamental studies on confined catalysis within porous materials such as carbon, zeolites and metal oxides in energy conversion related processes focusing on syngas chemistry, catalytic activation and conversion of small molecules e.g. CH4, N2 and CO2. She received a number of awards including the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars from the NSFC, the Chinese Chemical Society-BASF Youth Innovation Prize and the Young Woman Scientist Award of China (co-supported by All-China Women’s Federation, China Association for Science and Technology, China National Commission for UNESCO and L’OREAL).
As a Catalysis Science & Technology Associate Editor, Professor Xiulian Pan will provide her expertise in particular in the fields of:
- Heterogeneous catalysis
- Catalysis in energy conversion processes
- Catalytic conversion of small molecules

Ken-ichi Shimizu has been a full Professor at Institute for Catalysis, Hokkaido University, since 2015. He received his Ph.D. degree at Nagoya University in 2000. He began his career as a Research Associate at Niigata University in 2000, moved to Nagoya University in 2004 as an Assistant Professor, and then moved to Hokkaido University in 2010 as an Associate Professor.
His main interest is in heterogeneous catalysis for sustainable chemical transformations and automotive emission control. He also works for in situ spectroscopies and catalysis informatics for molecular level design of heterogeneous catalysis.
As a Catalysis Science & Technology Associate Editor, Professor Ken-ichi Shimizu will provide his expertise in particular in the fields of:
- Heterogeneous catalysis
- Catalysis in green organic synthesis
- Characterization of heterogeneous catalysts
