We are very happy to announce the following keynote speakers for the 4th International Conference on Combustion Science and Processes (CSP'19):
University of Bremen, Germany
The University of Edinburgh, UK
Sheffield Hallam University, UK
Dr. Johannes Kiefer
Johannes Kiefer is Chair Professor and Head of the division of engineering thermodynamics at the University of Bremen, Germany. In addition, he is an Honorary Professor at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, and he holds a guest professorship of the Erlangen Graduate School in Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT) at the University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.
He earned his chemical engineering degree and a PhD from the University Erlangen-Nuremberg. From 2010 to 2014 he was a lecturer and senior lecturer at the University of Aberdeen before he moved to Bremen. He was visiting researcher at renowned institutions including the division of combustion physics at the University of Lund, Sweden and the Combustion Research Facility of the Sandia National Labs Livermore, US. His research interests are the areas of developing and applying spectroscopic techniques for the characterization of advanced materials and processes including combustion. Johannes has received a number of prizes including the Combustion Institute British Section's Hinshelwood Prize 2012 and the 2010 distinguished paper award on diagnostics at the 33rd International Symposium on Combustion.
Topic of Keynote: Laser Diagnostics in Combustion: Opportunities and ChallengesKeynote Abstract
Dr. Xianfeng Fan
Xianfeng Fan is a chair professor and a deputy director of chemical engineering in School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. He was a Senior Lecturer at London South Bank University, and was a research fellow at the University of Birmingham. Professor Fan has been working on particulate materials processing, fluidization, CO2 capture and storage through developing a compact capture process using microwave and rotating packed bed, adsorbents and composite membranes, the development of visible light effective photocatalysis for biomass production, CO2 reforming and waste water treatment, multiphase flow in porous materials for enhanced oil recovery and fuel cells. Professor Fan has received about 4 million research grants from British Research Council, has collaborations with researcher/professors from 9 countries. He has been invited to give a number of plenary lectures, keynote lectures, invited talks at international conferences, proceedings, seminars, and to chair many sessions in international conferences. He has authored or co-authored over 180 peer reviewed publications and contributed 3 book chapters, and is editorial board members for 4 international journals. He has secured £3 million research funding in UK.
Before coming to UK, Prof Fan was a group leader and worked on materials separation and metallurgy at Beijing General Research Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, led several National projects, and were rewarded three times by Ministry of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China, and China Nonferrous Metals Industry Corporation.

Dr. Qinling Li
Qinling Li is a senior lecturer in Department of Engineering and Mathematics, Sheffield Hallam University. After received her PhD in the School of Engineering & Science, University of Southampton, she worked as research associates in Aeronautical and Automatics Engineering Department, Loughborough University (2003~2006), and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge (2006~2009). The main research fields are fundamentals of compressible turbulence, shock-waves boundary layer interaction, jet-in-cross flow & mixing, turbine/combustion chamber cooling effectiveness, fan broadband noise prediction, LES of short take-off and vertical landing aircraft in descending phase (STOVL), high-order numerical methods used in DNS/LES and fluid-structure interaction (FSI). She is also interested in turbomachinery mean-line design, multi-phase flow, energy storage, thermal system, energy saving and recovery.
