Lixin Cheng joined the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark, in 2013. Cheng received his Ph.D. degree in thermal energy engineering from the State Key Laboratory of Multiphase Flow in Power Engineering at Xi ían Jiaotong University, China, in 1998. Cheng was Senior Lecturer and Course Leader in petroleum engineering at the University of Portsmouth, Portsmouth, UK, before joining Aarhus University. Cheng worked as Lecturer, Scientific Collaborator, Alexander von Humboldt Fellow, Senior Research Fellow, and Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Aberdeen, UK, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, Leibniz University of Hanover, Germany, London South Bank University, UK, and Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, respectively. Cheng serves currently as the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Microscale and Nanoscale Thermal and Fluid Transport Phenomena (IJMNTFTP) since 2010 and the Editor-in-Chief of e-book series Advances in Multiphase Flow and Heat Transfer. Cheng is a reviewer of 32 journals, a number of book/e-book proposals, research proposals, and conferences. Cheng also serves in international conference organization committees. Cheng’s research interests include experimental research and modeling on two-phase flow and heat transfer, enhanced heat transfer, multiphase flow technology in petroleum engineering, transport phenomena in macro- and microchannels and systems, compact and microheat exchangers, energy and environmental issues in chemical processes, electronic chip cooling, nanofluid two-phase flow and heat transfer, sub- and supercritical CO2 heat transfer in macro- and microchannels, thermal systems, renewable energy, and relevant interdisciplinary research. Cheng has published more than 80 papers in journals and conferences, 4 book chapters, and edited several books/e-books.
