Jianwen JIANG is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore. (www.chbe.nus.edu.sg/people/faculty_jiangjw.html). His research is focused on molecular simulation and modeling for solid-state materials and complex fluids such as nanomaterials, polymers and biomolecules. His current research activities include the molecular engineering of nanoporous and membrane materials for energy, environmental and pharmaceutical applications including carbon capture, water treatment, drug delivery, etc. He has published over 130 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and contributed several book chapters and review articles. He is in the editorial board of Advances in Materials Research, International Scholarly Research Network (ISRN) Nanotechnology, Journal of Chemical Engineering and Process Technology.
Our research is focused on the exploitation of supercomputer simulations and the development of sophisticated statistical-mechanics theories for complex fluids and solid-state materials such as biomolecules, polymers, surfactants, and nanostructures. The objective is to provide microscopic and mesoscopic insights into macroscopic properties/phenomena, to bridge the gap between physical and engineering sciences in emerging interdisciplinary fields, and subsequently to assist in the rational design of novel materials and the optimization of engineering processes. The modeling projects are collaborated with internal and external experimentalists. Current research activities include:
