Dr. Luo Guohua (Luo Guo-Hua) graduated all in Chemical Engineering, with a BS in 1985 from Tsinghua University of China, and with his MS in 1988 and PhD in 1996 from Chinese Academy of Sciences. During 1996-2000, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Tsinghua University and Gunma University of Japan. Since June 2000, he has been an Associate Professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering of Tsinghua University (FLOTU). Luo’s research interest covers from fundamental level by lab-scale experiments to potential industrial applications on novel solid catalysts design and evaluation, gas-solid fluidized bed reactors for carbon nanotubes, DeNOx process of flue gas, catalytic synthesis of fine chemicals, and green nano-gold@carbon (non-Hg) catalyst for PVC industry in China (The latest funding from Ministry of Science and Technology of China:2016YFB0301603). He has published with his co-workers over 90 peer-reviewed academic papers with total cited times over 2000, and his H-index was 25. Over 20 graduate students and post-doctoral fellows have worked with him. Together with other colleagues, he received three first prizes, from the Ministry of Education of China in 2005 in natural science and in 2012 in technology invention, from Chinese Union of Petroleum and Chemical Industry in 2015 in science and technology progress. He is in charge of an undergraduate course of Fluidization Reaction Engineering. Over 30 graduate students and post-doctoral fellows have worked with him.
