Personal profile

Biography

Prof Huanting Wang is an ARC Australian Laureate Fellow in the Department of Chemical Engineering  and Director of the Monash Centre for Membrane Innovation at Monash University.

Originally qualified in material science and engineering at the University of Science and Technology of China, he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology and University of California Riverside. Professor Wang was awarded an ARC QEII Fellowship in 2004, an ARC Future Fellowship in 2010, RACI R.K. Murphy Medal in 2019,  the Membrane Society of Australasia Tony Fane Award in 2020 and an ARC Australian Laureate Fellowship. He was a member of the ARC Future Fellowship selection advisory committee in 2011, and a member of the ARC College of Experts in 2012-2015. Prof Wang was a Board Member of the Membrane Society of Australasia and a Council Member (treasurer) of the Aseanian Membrane Society, and is a Fellow of The Royal Society of Chemistry,  The American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering. He was the Associate Dean (International) of Faculty of Engineering (2010-2011, and 2014-2020) and the Associate Dean (International) of Faculty of Informational Technology (2014-2015). He served as Asia Editor of Journal of Experimental Nanoscience in 2014-2019, and is currently an Associate Editor of Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research.
