Xi Gao received his B.S (2010) in Chemical Engineering from Xiamen University, M.S (2013) in Chemical Engineering from Zhejiang University, and Ph.D. (2016) in Chemical Engineering from Iowa State University. He conducted his postdoctoral research in the Multiphase Flow Science group (home of open-source CFD software, MFiX) at the National Energy Technology Laboratory from 2017 to 2019, he then worked as a research scientist in 2019. He joined GTIIT as an assistant professor in June 2021.
His research interests are chemical reactor engineering, multiphase flow science, fluidization, catalytic reaction engineering, clean energy technologies, solid fuels (biomass/coal/plastic/MSW) thermochemical conversions, microalgae biotechnologies, multiphase CFD solver development, and so on. He published more than 50 articles in top scientific journals, such as AIChE J., Chem. Eng. Sci., Ind. Eng. Chem. Res., Chem. Eng. J. He participated in five national projects in the United States and China; made 6 invited talks at several international conferences; served as the session chair of the WCPT-8 international conference; was invited to review manuscripts for more than 30 scientific journals. Dr. Gao collaborates closely with researchers for several renowned research institutes, universities, and companies, such as the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, TU Darmstadt, Politecnico di Milano, Pfizer, Sabic America, Sortacarbo, and so on.
