He graduated from Department of Horticulture, Southwest Agricultural University in 1982, received his Master degree from Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, University of California, Riverside in 1987 and his Ph.D. degree from Department of Microbiology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Idaho University in 1992. From 1999 to 2002, he was appointed the assistant scientist and assistant professor of Department of Botany, Iowa State University successively. Now he is professor & PhD advisor of School of Life Science, University of Science and Technology of China. In year 2002, Dr. Xiang was awarded “Changjiang Scholar” by Ministry of Education.
