Education:

PhD, Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, (2013-2019)

BSc, China University of Mining and Technology (2007-2011)

Background:

I got my PhD degree from Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences last year. then joined Synfuels China Technology Co., Ltd. We are focusing on large industrial scale application of Fischer–Tropsch Synthesis. I join the Centre for Nature Inspired Engineering (CNIE) as a visiting researcher for two year from February 2020. My current research interest is in the adsorption and diffusion process and its influence on catalytic properties in zeolites. My project in CNIE focuses on the external and internal surface barriers which affect the overall molecular transport process in zeolite.

Research Areas:

1. Modeling thermodynamic properties of complex mixtures containing non-associating, associating, and polar components;

2. Process simulation for design and optimization of large industrial processes;

3. Investigations on external and internal zeolite surface barriers with molecular simulations.
