Biography:

Research Associate, Computational Modelling Group, Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom, Sep, 2014 ~ present.

Research Associate, Centre for Process Integration, School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science, University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom, Nov, 2009 ~ Sep, 2014.

Dr. Ming Pan is currently working as a research associate at the Computation Modelling Group in the University of Cambridge, UK. Before this, he had worked in the Centre for Process Integration in the University of Manchester, UK, for almost five years.

His research skills include modelling and optimisation for industrial processes, mathematical (linear, nonlinear and integer) programming, and model parametrisation and approximation. These skills have been successfully implemented in eco-industrial parks, refinery systems, power plant systems, manufacturing systems and CO2 capture processes. His solid theory knowledge on chemical engineering, operations research, energy technology and applied mathematics can provide new insights into the interdisciplinary research of Engineering, Informatics, Environmental Science and Social Science. He has published 36 papers (19 journal papers and 17 conference papers) and one book chapter.
