Biography

Dr Ruiping Zou is an Associate Professor (Research) at Department of Chemical Engineering, Monash University Australia (2015- ). She received B.Eng. (1986) from North-Eastern University China, M.Eng. (1990) from University of Wollongong Australia and PhD (1998) from UNSW Australia. She was an ARC Australian Postdoctoral Fellow (1998-2000), Research Fellow/Adjunct Lecturer (2001-2008) and Senior Research Fellow/Senior Lecturer (2008-2015) with UNSW Australia. She has been the Manager for Lab. for Simulation and Modelling of Particulate Systems (SIMPAS: www.monash.edu/engineering/simpas) since 2002,  and the Node Director (Vic) of the ARC Hub for Computational Particle Technology (CPT: www.monash.edu/comparticletech) since 2016.

She is a leading scientist in particle/powder technology, has authored/co-authored over 140 Journal papers, book chapters and conference papers including 80 referred Journal papers; attracted > 3.5M A$ research grants through various university and ARC competitive schemes including 8 ARC projects and 2 ARC Hubs; supervising/co-supervising 26 postgraduate students (18 graduated), and been referee for ARC grant applications and various learned journals including Powder Technology, Chemical Engineering Science, and Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research. She has been the managing editor for the Journal of Powder Technology since 2016 (2016-2022),

Research interests
