Wei Wang is a Professor at the Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He holds chemical engineering degrees from Sichuan University, China (B.S. 1994) and University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (Ph.D. 2002). He is currently the deputy director of the State Key Laboratory of Multiphase Complex Systems, China.
His research interest lies in the field of multiscale modeling and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for multiphase flows. Based on his fundamental work, he developed a commercial software EMMS. His method enables prediction of the choking instability in circulating fluidized beds and helps SINOPEC in the design and troubleshooting of industrial processes of e.g. maximizing iso-paraffins (MIP), a novel diameter-transformed, fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) process. He now serves as the executive editor for Particuology.
