Liqiang Lu, Ph. D.

Dr. Lu received his Ph.D. from Institute of Process Engineering, CAS In Jan. 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Wei Ge. He also got two bachelor degrees from China University of Petroleum (Beijing) in Jun. 2010, one is on Process Equipment and Control and the other is on Computer Science. His past research focus on large scale discrete particle simulation of fluid-particle systems using OpenFOAM and GPU based DEM code. He proposed a coarse grained method for simulation of gas solid flows using energy minimization multi-scale (EMMS) model and kinetic theory of granular flows (KTGF). He is also interested in MIC and CUDA code optimization and developed an online interactive simulation system with other colleagues in IPE. Since Mar. 2016, he has been working as an ORISE postdoctoral researcher at the NETL Multiphase Flow Science Team and focusing on simulation of rare earth element (REE) extraction using MFIX.
