Prof. Ben Xu graduated with a BS degree of Thermal Energy and Power Engineering in Wuhan University in 2007, a MS degree of Fluid Mechanics in Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010, and his thesis supervisor is Prof. Jiachun Li, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. After finishing his master study, in 2010 Prof. Xu went to University of Arizona and studied with Prof. Perry Li for his doctoral research in solar thermal energy storage system. After five years study and research, Prof. Xu earned his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in August, 2015, and then he joined Prof. Ying Sun’s research group in Drexel University in September 2015 as a postdoc research associate for a $3 million US DOE ARPA-E dry cooling project.
In September 2016, Prof. Xu joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) as an Assistant Professor, right now Prof. Xu is the director of Multiphase Transport Lab at UTRGV, and there are two PhD students and two Master students right now in his lab.
Prof. Xu has already published more than 30 peer-revised journal papers (SCI indexed). He was the PI for a USDA funded Energy Efficiency project ($93,000), and he was the key personnel for a US NSF-MRI funded project ($230,000). Prof. Xu has been serving as the reviewer for many top journals in energy-related areas, such as Applied Energy, Energy Conversion and Management, Energy, and Renewable Energy. Prof. Xu is also serving as the Committee Sectary in the technical committee of Renewable Energy and Energy Conversion (REEC) in ASME Advanced Energy System Division.
