I received MSc degree from North China Electric Power University in 2010, and my study was based in the National Engineering Lab for Biomass Power Generation Equipment. In 2014, I received PhD degree on energy engineering from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. Thereafter, I was working the University of Glasgow as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2015, I joined the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering at University of Strathclyde as a Lecturer. I have been working on research and development in the energy engineering area for over 12 years, including 2-year industry work experience in power generation sector. I am an academic member of International Flame Research Foundation (IFRF) and Combustion Institute (British Section). My research focuses on biomass waste to energy, including modelling development and optimization of thermal and chemical (catalytic) processes as well as advanced characterization of feedstocks and products, targeting productions of heat, power, and biofuels via various conversion technologies, e.g., clean combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, and torrefaction. The research work is supported by both modelling and experimental studies. My research group have expertise in CFD modelling of reacting flow, such as ignition and flame properties, multiphase interactions, reacting progress, heat transfer, and emissions. We have equipment to conduct experimental studies, at varying temperatures and heating rates, to characterize the solid fuel on its inherent properties, kinetics, and thermal performances.
