Dr. Yuan recently joined the Group of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at Aston University. Prior to this, she worked in the field of colloidal and nanoparticle formulation and engineering as a Research Fellow in the Institute of Particle Science and Engineering at University of Leeds for 7 years. She has a First and Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering and Fuel Processing, and her PhD Degree was in Polymer Science and Engineering. Before pursuing her PhD study, she did teaching and research in Chemical Engineering at Liaoning University of Science and Technology for more than 10 years.
My expertise is on interfacial phenomena in colloidal and nanoparticle formulation and engineering. My research has been focused on fundamentals and applications of different dispersion systems for petroleum production (nanofluids), controlled delivery, polymeric composites and catalysis in fuel production. I provide supervision for PhD study in these aspects.
