Dr. Jiang Lan Ying is a Professor at the School of Metallurgy and Environment of Central South University in China.She has worked as a Research Fellow from 2005 to 2009 at the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) of National University of Singapore (NUS), and carried out research in "Sub-nano Pore Size Membranes for Biofuel Separation and Purification" and "The Development of Mixed Matrix Nano-composite Materials for Membrane Separation". From 2002 to 2005, she was awarded the research scholarship to pursue her doctoral studies on “Membrane Formation and Characterization for Gas Separation” at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering of NUS and got her PhD in 2006. Dr. Jiang received her B.Sc. degree (1997) from the Department of Environmental Science, Wuhan University, China. Her overall research interest is the science and engineering of membrane-based separations with the emphasis on their applications in metallurgical processes, environmental protection, and energy production/conservation. Her current and upcoming effort is concentrated on integrally-skinned and thin film composite membrane formation, nano-scale mixed matrix membrane, polymer blending, membrane surface modification and membrane applications in metallurgical field.
