Alumnus Becomes Faculty at Tianjin University

ChBE alumnus Dr. Jingtao Wang (Ph.D. '06) has been appointed to an associate professorship in the School of Chemical Engineering at Tianjin University, China. Established in 1895, Tianjin University is China's oldest institution of higher learning, one of China's 16 National Key Universities, and one of the largest interdisciplinary engineering schools in the country.

Wang's research focus is on thermodynamics in water phenomena and crystallization. He is also currently working on a project involving numerical calculation in industrial process integration.

While at the University of Maryland, Wang was advised by Professor Mikhail Anisimov and worked in Anisimov's joint research group with Professor Emeritus Jan Sengers. His dissertation was titled "The Nature of Asymmetry of Fluid Criticality."

Wang explained his goal was to become a professor and that Anisimov and Sengers were both instrumental in helping him prepare for and supportive during the application process. "I want to offer a special thanks to both of them," he said.
