Biography

Dr. Dan Wang received a B.E. degree in materials science and engineering and a Ph.D. degree in optical engineering from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 2008 and 2013, respectively. He was Visiting Scholar at Case Western Reserve University (2013-2015) and Harvard University (2019) in the United States. In 2015, Dr. Wang was an associate professor at Beijing University of Chemical Technology, Beijing, China. His research interests focus on process intensification (especially high gravity technology, rotating packed bed reactor technology), optical nanomaterials and devices. Since February 2020, Dr. Wang has been involved in a research group led by Prof. Jian-Feng Chen at Chinese Academy of Engineering on the key technologies for development and industrialization of reusable personal protective equipment against COVID-19, which is partly supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China. The research group proposes user-friendly methods to decontaminate masks, extending mask use time during the COVID-19 pandemic. By collaborating with multidisciplinary experts, Dr. Wang promotes a sustainable antivirus face masks based on the use of nanocopper/polyethylene glycol terephthalate fibers, which can effectively eliminate SARS-CoV-2 and H1N1 viruses.
