Xiangchen has always been interested in the sciences and chose Environmental Science and Engineering as the best way to apply science to understand chemistry in both natural and engineering processes. She received training in environmental chemistry and toxicology during her senior year in college and Masters degree program. Currently she is pursuing a major in Civil and Environmental Engineering and a minor in Chemistry at Colorado School of Mines. Her current projects include developing Ruthenium- and earth-abundant metal-based catalytic systems for aqueous oxyanion reduction and renewable energy production. Besides work, Xiangchen enjoys learning languages, traveling, country music and classical music
