In the last two decades, I have established frequent international academic exchanges and collaborations with related research groups of famous universities in Belgium, Canada, the United States, and Singapore. In particular, I led a China-Belgium international cooperation project funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (China funded CNY

2000,000 for the Chinese researcher and Belgium funded CNY 2000,000 for the Belgian researcher).

Research Interests

Luo’s research lab is specializing in CFD, multiscale modeling, transport phenomenon in multiphase systems, (polymerization) reaction engineering, reactor and process design, and advanced polymer manufacturing. As a group leader, Prof. Luo has made several fundamental contributions to the fields of multiphase flow science and chemical engineering, and published over 180 peer reviewed papers in prestigious international scientific journals as corresponding author. The current scientific interests of Luo’s research group focus on (1) multiscale modeling of multiphase flow systems, (2) polymer reaction engineering and process intensification and (3) model-based (polyolefin) reactor and process design. The details are given below for better illustration of the impact of these studies:

Research Project









I have been teaching the major course "Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics" for undergraduate students and the major course "Advanced Transfer and Separation" and "Advanced Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics" (ACET) for graduate students of Chemical Engineering since 2003. In particular, ACET was selected as the Zhiyuan Honorary Construction Course for the Graduate Students of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

I have trained and supervised 10 PhD graduates (all of them are engaged in teaching and scientific research in universities and six of them pursued faculty positions at top universities in China), over 40 master graduates and over 30 undergraduates. Nearly half of the graduates won the National Scholarships for Graduate Students and some of them won the prestigious international and national academic awards such as the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship, the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship and the Bronze Award for Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation of the Jingbo-Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China.
