Lietai Yang has broad experience in corrosion and high-pressure and high-temperature solution chemistry and is considered a leading authority on corrosion monitoring. He has authored/co-authored over 90 articles published in journals and conference proceedings, and multiple chapters in technical books. He has organized and chaired over 10 international symposia and workshops on corrosion monitoring. He holds 13 patents related to corrosion monitoring and electrochemical sensors for solution chemistry at high-temperatures and high-pressures. Many of the patented sensors are now deployed in plants and oil fields for corrosion mitigation programs. In addition, he has served in various roles at NACE International and ASTM International, and is the past chair of the US Technical Advisory Group to ISO Technical Committee 156 (2013-2015). He is a Fellow of NACE.
