Aidong joined Oxford in 2014 as a University Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Department of Engineering Science, and as a Research Fellow of Green Templeton College.
He studied Chemical Engineering in Hebei University of Technology and Dalian University of Technology and received a Bachelor's degree and a PhD in 1992 and 1997, respectively.
Aidong's research interests lie in developing methods and tools for modelling chemical/biochemical processes and related systems and in applying models and other systems engineering approaches to support the development of sustainable energy, engineering and manufacturing systems.
In particular, his group is currently active in three areas: biological systems engineering, food-energy-water nexus, and negative emission technology.
We are currently open to supervising research students in biological systems engineering and integrated engineering of food, energy and water systems.
