Personal profile

Biography

Dr Hou, earned a PhD from UNSW in 2012, is a current ARC DECRA Fellow in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Monash University. He obtained both ME and BE from the Northeastern University of China.

Aiming to formulate safe, smart, and sustainable energy efficient processes involving granular materials, his research mission centers in unravelling fantastic mechanics and thermochemical behaviours of granular (and multiphase) flow through rigorous cutting edge multiscale modelling techniques, experiments and theoretical analysis. His main research areas include: (i) heat transfer and chemical reactions in packed and fluidized beds, (ii) multiphase flows in water treatment, (iii) granular flow stability pertinent to segregation and mixing, and (iv) development of numerical techniques and virtual process models. Dr Hou has published 60+ articles and attracted more than $2M AUD research funds.

Dr Hou has also received various awards in the past, reflecting the recognition at different stages, and been invited to give plenary/keynote talks at different international conferences.
