Dr Lu Xing

Associate Professor

Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering

I completed my master and Ph.D. in mechanical and aerospace engineering at the Oklahoma State University, the United States between 2008 and 2014. During these 6 years, I worked as a research assistant and participated in projects related to renewable energy systems and were funded by the United States Department of Energy. From 2014 to 2015, I joined ACCENTURE as software engineering at Tampa Florida, performed detailed building energy analyses and delivered energy-saving strategies. Since 2015, I was employed as an assistant professor in the Institute of Energy and Power Engineering and in China-EU Institute for Clean and Renewable Energy at the top 10 university in China - Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST). Being an assistant professor in the energy department in HUST, I had been the principal investigator for several scientific or engineering projects. In 2020, I joined the academic team of the Faculty of Engineering & Environment at Northumbria University to continue research work on hydrogen and fuel cell technology, renewable energy system.

Lu Xing

My specialty is investigating the simultaneous interaction of heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid dynamics physical processes for hydrogen and fuel cell technology, renewable energy systems. My research motivation is the deepen understand of such physical processes through the development of model methodology and applications of innovative solutions methods to optimize the utilization of clean renewable energy.
