I obtained my B.S. degree from the Department of Thermal Engineering of Tsinghua University (Beijing). Then I headed my postgraduate studies in University of Science and Technology of China (Hefei) and received my M.S. degree in Thermophysics under the supervision of Professor Xinshi Ge. Before I pursued my Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from  University of Alberta (Edmonton), I had worked in Shanghai Institute of Electric Power for six years. During my five-year Ph.D. program supervised by Dr. Dongqing Li (now with University of Toronto) and Dr. Jacob H. Masliyah, I also had been with Syncrude Canada Ltd. - Edmonton Research Centre under the NSERC-Oil Sands Industry Chair Program for three years. In 1999, I joined the Nanyang Technological University as an Assistant Professor. 

I am the author and coauthor of more than 100 publications in referred international journals and conference proceedings. I also have been a peer reviewer for many international journals including Analytica Chimica Acta, Chemical Engineering Science, Electrophoresis, Environmental Science and Technology, Experiments in Fluids, Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Research, International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, International Journal of Heat and Fluid Flow, Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, Journal of Physical Chemistry, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, Journal of Physics D, Langmuir, Microfluidics and Nanofluidics, Numerical Heat Transfer and Optics and Lasers.  In addition, I have served as the member of the scientific committee in several international conferences.

Development of electrokinetic microfluidic pump, micromixer, separator for solutes, and particle sorter
Fluid flow and heat and mass transfer in microfluidics
Electrokinetic transport phenomena
Dielectrophoresis for transport, separation and sorting of cells
Colloidal particle and liquid droplets interaction, transport and deposition
Surface thermodynamics, wetting, adhesion and capillary phenomena

Ph.D. Student Scholarships are open to qualified applicants.
