Shouliang (Shawn) Yi

U.S. Department of Energy, USA

Prof. Shouliang Yi is currently a Principal Research Scientist & Project Lead at U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). He is also NETL Principal Investigator of a number of projects related to NETL's water-energy program. His research is focused on the development of novel membrane- and sorbent-based materials to support the Carbon Capture and Utilization Program (CCUS) and Water Management at NETL. He is an internationally recognized scientist in membrane science and technology, dedicated to the design and development of novel high-performance membranes and sorbents with complex morphologies (polymeric membranes, 2D material-based membranes, metal-organic framework (MOF)-based mixed-matrix membranes, and hollow fiber membranes (and sorbents) for key energy intensive separations, resources recovery, water desalination, CO2 capture, utilization, and storage, and negative emissions technologies. Prior to joining NETL, he worked as Laboratory Manager and Senior Project Director with Professor William J. Koros in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has published more than 60 peer-reviewed publications in prestigious journals and conference proceedings, including articles in Science Advances, Nature Materials, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Separation and Purification Technology, and Journal of Membrane Science. He also contributes numerous internal technical reports and presentations. He is the inventor of 11 patents in membrane materials and separation science. He serves as the Editor of Separation and Purification Technology (Elsevier), Associate Editors of Carbon Capture Science & Technology (IChemE & Elsevier), Results in Engineering (Elsevier), and Editorial/Advisory Board Member of a number of peer-reviewed top journals.
