Jiafei is currently a scientist in the research flied of CO2 utilisation and renewable fuels at German Aerospace Center (DLR). He was a PDRA working on thermophysical properties of amine solvent for CO2 capture in the EPSRC Gas-FACTS project (EP/J020788/1) at Imperial College from 2012 to 2015. He obtained his B.Sc. in Applied Chemistry from the China University of Mining and Technology in 2006 and his M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the Technical University of Dortmund in 2008. He subsequently spent three and half a years on his Ph.D. study under the direction of Professor David Agar in Dortmund. His dissertation was sponsored by Shell Global Solutions involved work on CO2 capture using thermomorphic biphasic solvent with energy-efficient regeneration.
