|Dr. Duan, Fei joined in Division of Thermal and Fluids Engineering in School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University as an assistant professor on July 11, 2008. Before that, he is a postdoctoral fellow at Thermodynamics and Kinetics Lab of Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering in University of Toronto, Canada after he finished his Ph.D. degree there. He finished his B. Sc. & Eng. on Chemical Engineering and M. Sc. & Eng. on Materials Science and Engineering. The focus of Dr. Duan’s doctoral and postdoctoral studies was on thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics. During his doctoral study, he visited Institute of Fluid Mechanics at Friedrich-Alexander-University, Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.|
