Chuyang Y. TANG<<The University of Hong Kong, China

Professor Chuyang Tang is a world-leading expert in membrane separation technology with more than two decades of research and industrial experience in the synthesis of novel membranes and optimisation of membrane processes.
Professor Tang will be hosted by the Department of Chemical Engineering. His expertise in the fields of environmental and chemical engineering is well recognised and has led to the patenting of fifteen inventions, including the Aquaporin Inside Membranes which has been successfully commercialised by Aquaporin Asia Singapore. In healthcare, his team developed nano-functionalized reusable face masks with novel air filters to fight COVID-19, which won several awards. He is a recipient of the Clarivate Highly Cited Researchers (Cross-Field) in 2021, with over 20,655 citations.
Professor Tang’s highly regarded achievements in both Healthcare and Sustainability align well with the University’s priority research in these fields. During his tenure, Professor Tang will be mentoring young academics at Bath, as well as lecturing and engaging in a wide range of courses in the Department of Engineering.


Xueming Chen<<Fuzhou University, China

Ajit Sarmah<<University of Auckland, New Zealand

Dr. Ajit Sarmah is the professor of University of Auckland, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Auckland, New Zealand1 Jul 2011 - present. PhD (Soil and Water) University of Adelaide, Adelaide, Adelaide, Australia; MS (Soil Physics) University of Queensland, Brisbane, Brisbane, Australia; MEng (Soil and Water) The Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand; Bsc.Ag.Eng (Dist), Soil and Water
The University of Allahabad, Allahabad, India. His primary scientific interests are in Biochar, Waste management, Pyrolysis, Soil water and Environmental remediation. He integrates many fields, such as Biochar and Amendment, in his works. His Waste management study incorporates themes from Modulus, Thermogravimetry, Polypropylene and Elastic modulus. His work carried out in the field of Pyrolysis brings together such families of science as Ultimate tensile strength, Charcoal, Composite number, Biocomposite and Pulp and paper industry. His studies in Soil water integrate themes in fields like Environmental chemistry and Agronomy. The Environmental chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Partition coefficient and Sorption. Ajit K. Sarmah mainly investigates Biochar, Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Sorption and Adsorption. His Biochar research includes elements of Composite material, Polypropylene and Pulp and paper industry. His Total organic carbon study in the realm of Environmental chemistry connects with subjects such as Estrone and Hexazinone. In his research on the topic of Soil water, Water content is strongly related with Agronomy. His Sorption study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Partition coefficient, Hydrophobic effect and Freundlich equation. His research in Adsorption intersects with topics in Inorganic chemistry, Zeta potential and Aqueous solution.
