TAEM- The Arts and Entertainment Magazine has recently included a Science section for the interest of many of the students who read our publication and use it as a learning tool for their careers. We have thus far posed questions to astronomers, mathematicians, and physicists and would like to introduce the subject of Chemical Engineering.
We are very honored to be able to interview Dr. Liang-Shih Fan of Ohio State University. Dr. Fan has received many accolades for his work and research in the field of chemical engineering. Dr. Fan, please tell all of our student readers about your educational background.
LSF- I studied Chemical Engineering in Taiwan at National Taiwan University. Then I came to the United States to obtain my masters and doctorate at West Virginia University where I studied fluidization and flue gas cleaning from coal combustion. Then I went to Kansas State University for my post-doctoral studies and received my masters in Statistics. After that I started my academic career at Ohio State focusing on multiphase flows and fossil fuel conversion and environmental solutions. Much of my research is rooted in chemical engineering fundamentals such as understanding particle science and technology that can solve real-world energy and pollution problems. (more…)
