Biography

Dr. Fan has led and worked on many projects in the areas of chemical production, clean energy generation and environmental protection, which have been supported by various domestic and international funding agencies such as NSF, DOE and EPA, USGS and USDA in the US, New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) in Japan, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and industrial companies such as Siemens and Caterpillar. He has helped various chemical, environmental and energy companies to overcome their technical challenges. He has published over 175 refereed books, book chapters, and papers in different chemical and environmental engineering, energy, and chemistry journals. As an Associate Editor or Editorial Board Member or Advisory Board Member, he has been serving several international chemical and energy as well as environmental journals. He has been supporting and supervising a number of graduate students and postdocs as well as research scientists in his research areas.

Education

  • Ph.D. Chemical Engineering, Osaka University, 2003
  • Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering, Iowa State University, 2000
  • Ph.D. Environmental (Engineering) Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 1997

Research Interests

  • Integrating multiple methods and processes including (homogenous, heterogeneous and photo as well as bio) catalysis and separation with sorption and membrane for conversion of coal, oil and gases to value-added chemicals and clean fuels   
  • Developing new materials (e.g., ionic liquids and  nanostructure as well as magnetic materials) for clean and renewable energy production with conventional and unconventional technologies such as supercritical fluids and advanced crystallization as well as chemical vapor deposition
  • Understanding the reaction mechanisms associated with chemical and energy generation processes through various theoretical and experimental tools including computation chemistry
  • Controlling air pollution (e.g., CO2 and Hg as well as H2S captures), and managing water qualities (e.g., heavy metal and chemical oxygen demand removals)
  • Life cycle assessments of chemical and energy generation processes
