Real–Time Simulation of Particle–Fluid Systems — Changes and Prospects
Prof. Jinghai Li
Chinese Academy of Sciences, China
Prof. Li Jinghai graduated from the Department of Thermal Engineering of the Harbin Institute of Technology in 1982. He entered a master’s degree program at his alma mater in the same year, obtained his Ph.D. in 1987 from the Institute of Process Engineering (IPE) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing. He conducted his post-doctoral research at the City University of New York and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. After returning to China in 1990, he served as assistant professor, associate professor, professor, vice director and director of IPE in succession. In February 2004, he was appointed a vice president of CAS.
His research is focused on the establishment of Multi-Scale Methodology for multi-phase complex systems and application of computer simulation in scaling-up chemical reactors.
Nanoparticles for Use in New Generation Solar Cells
Prof. Yasushige Mori
Doshisha University, Japan
Prof. Yasushige Mori is currently Professor of Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at Doshisha University, Japan. He graduated from Department of Chemical Engineering at Kyoto University in 1974, and received his Dr. of Engineering from the same University in 1980. He spent a sabbatical leave as a Research Fellow with Professor B. Scarlett, Department of Chemical Engineering, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands from 1987 to 1988. He serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Powder Technology, and vice chairpersons of the Standard Powder Committee and International Liaison Committee in the Association of Powder Process Industry and Engineering, Japan. He also contributes to make International Standard at TC24/SC4 and Japanese Industrial Standard. His research interests include the formation of nanoparticles of metals and/or semiconductors in liquid system, measurements of interaction forces between particles and plates, particle size analysis, and application of titania nanoparticles for dye-sensitized solar cells.
Advancing Design in Powder Mixing
Prof. John Bridgwater
Cambridge University, UK
Prof. John Bridgwater studied chemical engineering at the University of Cambridge and Princeton University. He then spent three years working in chemical engineering design before returning to the Department of Chemical Engineering at Cambridge, then led by P V Danckwerts, to teach design. However, in 1964 research started to develop in another direction when he began work to understand the mixing of coarse granular materials and powders. Subsequently he held an Esso Senior Research Fellowship at Hertford College, Oxford and then a University Lecturership in Engineering Science and Lubbock Fellowship at Balliol College, all part of the University of Oxford. A professorship followed at the University of Birmingham where he became Head of Chemical Engineering and Dean of the Engineering Faculty. In 1993 he returned to Cambridge to be Shell Professor, the position once held by Danckwerts and is now Professor Emeritus. He has worked widely with industry and served on many Government Committees, has been President of the Institution of Chemical Engineers and, for 22 years, was Editor-in-Chief of Chemical Engineering Science. Recent research interests include paste flow and extrusion, attrition during solids flow and still, after over 45 years, the mixing of coarse granular materials and powders.
Dewatering and Drying in Industrial Applications: Potential for Innovation
Prof. Duu-Jong Lee
National Taiwan University, Taiwan
Duu-Jong Lee received his B.E. (1984) and Ph.D. (1989) in Chemical Engineering, both from National Taiwan University. Prior to joining National Taiwan University in 1992, Dr. Lee was serving as Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Yuan-Ze Institute of Technology, Taiwan. After joining NTU, Dr. Lee was serving as Associate Professor at Department of Chemical Engineering, and was promoted as full Professor in 1996. In 2006, Dr. Lee was appointed as the Life-Time University Professor at National Taiwan University. Since 2010, Dr. Lee was adjunctly appointed as Dean of College of Engineering, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. Dr. Lee has published over 850 academic articles and one authored book. Lee is also serving as the Vice President of Taiwan Institute of Chemical Engineers.
