Research Profile

Yali Tang is an assistant professor at the Multiphase and Reactive Flows group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Her research expertise focuses on the fundamentals of multiphase flows using computational fluid dynamics modelling. An important research topic is the hydrodynamics, mass and heat transfer in fluid-particle systems such as in packed and fluidized beds, as well as bubble column reactors.

Academic Background

Yali Tang studied Chemical Engineering at Sichuan University (Chengdu, China), where she obtained her Master degree in 2011. Subsequently, she did her PhD at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) with Prof.dr.ir. J.A.M. (Hans) Kuipers at Multiphase Reactors group. In 2015 she obtained her PhD with the thesis ‘Direct Numerical Simulations of Hydrodynamics in Dense Gas-Solid Flows’. Afterwards, she did a postdoc at the same research group, working on ‘micro-mechanics of wet solids in gas-solid contactors’. In 2017 she became an assistant professor in the group of Multiphase & Reactive Flows of Prof.dr.ir. N.G. (Niels) Deen at TU/e.
