Ph.D., Chem. Eng., University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Professional Specialty
Optimization of Membrane Separation System
Iterative Learning Neural Network Based Control Design

Membrane Process Monitoring and Diagnosis


Research Fields
Membrane Reactor Design for Biodiesel Process

Based on the membrane reactor, a novel reactor-separator that keeps biological oil in the reactor and decreases the cost of separating oil from glycerin and biodiesel is developed.

Development and Optimal Design of Finned Tube Based Membrane Distillation Modules

Development of a novel finned hollow tube module in the membrane distillation(MD) for desalination is investigated. The effectiveness analysis is applied to optimal design and scale-up of MD modules.


Development of Non-Invasive Ultrasonic Techniques for Characterization of Membrane Fouling

The applications of ultrasonic techniques and multivariate statistical analysis to microfiltration and ultrafiltration can fully monitor and diagnose the flux decline by membrane fouling .


Iterative Learning Based Neural Networks for Membrane Separation

The goals are to develop an iterative learning based network to accurately the highly complex operation of membrane separation and to develop new control laws for reduction and control of flux decline.

Potential Applications of Research
