Professor Peixue Jiang's biography:
Professor Peixue Jiang is a professor and Dean of the Department of Energy and Power Engineering, Tsinghua University, China. He received his bachelor’s degree at Tsinghua University in 1986 and his Ph.D. degree in the Department of Thermo-Power Engineering at Moscow Power Engineering Institute in 1991. He then joined the Tsinghua University and took the full professor post in 1997.

His main research interests are convection heat transfer in porous media and enhanced heat transfer, convection heat transfer of fluids at super-critical pressures, transpiration cooling and film cooling, thermal transport in micro/nano-scale structures and spray cooling, migration of super-critical CO2 in porous media under conditions of geological storage and oil/shale gas recovery, Enhanced Geothermal System (EGS). He has won the National Natural Science Award second prize, and he is the recipient of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Chang Jiang Scholar of Ministry of Education, the leader of the Science Fund for Creative Research Groups from the National Natural Science Foundation of China. His research has resulted in more than 160 scientific publications in refereed international journals, 120 international conference papers, 160 papers published in refereed Chinese journals and 2 book chapters in Chinese.

Professor Jiang is now the Director of Institute of Engineering Thermophysics in Department of Energy and Power Engineering, Director of Key Laboratory for Thermal Science and Power Engineering of Ministry of Education, Director of Beijing Key Laboratory of CO2 Utilization and Reduction Technology. He is a council member of the Chinese society of engineering thermophysics, vice chairman of the Chinese heat and mass transfer society, member of department of energy and transportation in science and technology committee of the Ministry of Education, member of the Technical Expert Group on Renewable Energy and Hydrogen Energy of the 13th Five-Year Plan of China. He is an Honorary Professor of University of Nottingham (UK), Honorary Professor of Moscow Power Engineering Institute (Russia), and visiting Professor of University of Sheffield (UK).
