L. Q. “Rick” Wang

Professor

BEng; MEng (Shandong); PhD (Alberta)

 

Prof. L. Q. “Rick” Wang received his PhD from University of Alberta (Canada). He has over 26 years of university experience in thermal & power engineering, energy & environment, transport phenomena, nanotechnology, biotechnology and applied mathematics in Canada, China/Hong Kong, Singapore and the USA. He is the author/co-author of 9 books/monographs and 280+ book chapters and technical articles in these areas. His current research focuses on synthesis, characterization and application of nanofluids and thermal-wave fluids (the fluids in which heat conduction can support thermal waves and resonance).

Prof. Wang is a recipient of the Outstanding Young Researcher Award in 2000-2001. He has been a visiting professor at the Harvard University, a visiting professor at the Duke University, a chair professor at the Shandong University, and a guest professor at the Tianjin University. He serves as the editor-in-chief for the Advances in Transport Phenomena  and the Nano Energy and Nano Environment, the editor for the International Journal of Nonlinear Sciences and Numerical Simulation, the associate editor for the Current Nanoscience, the guest editor for a special issue on nanofluids for the Nanoscale Research Letters and annual issues on heat transfer in nanofluids for the Advances in Mechanical Engineering, and serves on the editorial boards of ten international journals.
