Plenary speaker

Dr. Wanqin Jin is a professor of Chemical Engineering at Nanjing Tech University, the Director of the State Key laboratory of Materials-oriented Chemical Engineering.

He received his Ph.D. from Nanjing University of Technology in 1999. He was a research associate at Institute of Materials Research &Engineering of Singapore (2001), an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow (2001-2003), visiting professors at Arizona State University (2007) and Hiroshima University (2011, JSPS invitation fellowship).

His current research focuses on the development of membrane materials and processes. He has published over 300 refereed journal publications including Nature, Sicence, Nat. Mater., Nat. Rev. Mater., Nat. Comm., Adv. Mater., Angew. Chem., AIChE J., J. Membr. Sci. with 25,000+ citations; written 3 monographs, contributed 6 book chapters and hold 64 authorized patents.

He was co-chair of the 10th International Congress on Membrane and membrane Processes (ICOM2014), and he is now an editor of Journal of Membrane Science. His research has been awarded the Underwood Medal (2019) by the IChemE (UK) and the “Humboldt Research Award” (2021) by Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for his leading research in the area of separation. 

Professor Wanqin Jin is scheduled to deliver a plenary lecture on Advanced Membranes with Subnanosized Channels for Molecular Separation.
