Cai Yun Ma
Cai Yun Ma received the B.Eng., M.Eng, and Ph.D. degrees. Ma works as a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Particle Science and Engineering in the School of Process, Environmental and Materials Engineering at the University of Leeds, Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in CFD and Combustion Group in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds and since then, he has carried out research in the areas of multiphase fluid flows, chemical reaction mechanisms, turbulent premixed and diffusion combustion and heat transfer, crystallization, molecular modeling of fine speciality chemicals, and modeling and scaling-up of continuous hydrothermal synthesis systems for nanomaterials manufacture. Ma has extensive experience in the development of both macroscale models for CFD, including numerical schemes development, turbulent time-dependent multiphase flows, combustion and pollutant formation processes with different turbulence models, and multiscale models for crystallization and nanotechnology. He has developed in-house computer codes for simulation of fluid flows, turbulent combustion, NOx emission, and crystallization (in particular morphological population balance modeling) and molecular structure elucidation of crystals. His research interests are in the areas of chemical process engineering including multiscale modeling from molecular, nano-, micro- to meso- and macroscale levels, morphological population balance modeling and CFD, nanoparticle formation, process optimisation ,scaling-up combining with novel reactor design, online process instrumentation, optimization ,and control.
