Keynote Speakers

Keynote Speaker One  

 

Prof. Henry Hu

University of Windsor, Canada

 

Dr. Hongfa (Henry) Hu is a tenured full Professor at Department of Mechanical, Automotive & Materials Engineering, University of Windsor. He was a senior research engineer at Ryobi Die Casting (USA), and a Chief Metallurgist at Meridian Technologies, and a Research Scientist at Institute of Magnesium Technology.

He received degrees from University of Toronto (Ph.D., 1996), University of Windsor (M.A.Sc., 1991), and Shanghai University of Technology (B.A.Sc., 1985). He was a NSERC Industrial Research Fellow (1995-1997). His publications (over 160 papers) are in the area of magnesium alloys, composites, metal casting, computer modelling, and physical metallurgy. He was a Key Reader of the Board of Review of Metallurgical and Materials Transactions, a Committee Member of the Grant Evaluation Group for Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, National Science Foundation (USA) and Canadian Metallurgical Quarterly. He has served as a member or chairman of various committees for CIM-METSOC, AFS, and USCAR.

The applicant’s current research is on materials processing and evaluation of light alloys and composites. His recent fundamental research is focussed on transport phenomena and mechanisms of solidification, phase transformation and dissolution kinetics. His applied research has included development of magnesium automotive applications, cost-effective casting processes for novel composites, and control systems for casting processes. His work on light alloys and composites has attracted the attention of several automotive companies.

Keynote Speaker Three

Prof. Jian Chen

Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

 

Education and Experience:

Professor Chen Jian received his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. in chemical engineering at Department of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University in 1985, 1990 and 1994, respectively. He has worked in the department since 1990, becoming Professor of Chemical Engineering in 2001. He worked as a visiting scholar in Schlumberger, Canada in 2002.

Research interests:

Thermodynamics and Separation Engineering

Research interests cover 1) Molecular thermodynamics of fluid properties and phase equilibria for fluids across the critical point, unsymmetrical fluids in size or interaction, fluids with association. 2) Molecular design for solvents based on the quantitative structure-property relationship. 3) Engineering thermodynamics and process design for separation processes such as gas absorption, solvent extraction, and so on.

CO2 capture technology

Recently CO2 absorption used for greenhouse gas CO2 capture and sequestration CCS is the main research area, including molecular design of new capture solvents, thermodynamics and kinetics of vapor-liquid absorption systems, process simulation and optimization, technological design and intensifications.
