Asst Prof Huangwei ZHANG

Co-Principal Investigator

Asst Prof Zhang Huangwei received his Bachelor’s degree in engineering mechanics and Master’s degree in fluid mechanics in 2007 and 2009, respectively from the School of Aeronautic Science and Engineering, Beihang University (BUAA). He worked as a full-time research associate in the State Key Laboratory of Turbulence and Complex Systems, Peking University from 2009 to 2011. He obtained his PhD degree in energy and combustion from the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge (Cantab) in 2015. He then stayed on in the University of Cambridge to take up a postdoctoral research associate position on pulverised coal combustion.

Asst Prof Zhang's research fields are combustion and reacting flows, turbulent combustion modelling, multiphase combustion, near-limit flame dynamics, high performance computing of reacting flows and parallel algorithm development.
