Apostolos Pesiridis is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Mechanical Engineering at Brunel University London in the UK. He is part of the academic staff in the College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences’ Centre of Advanced Powertrain and Fuels (CAPF) and his research focus is on transportation turbomachinery applications (primarily automotive). His research spans advanced turbocharging/supercharging applications, waste exhaust energy and heat recovery turbines, as well as novel internal combustion engine valve technologies.
Dr Hua Chen is Technical director of National Laboratory of Engine Turbocharging Technology since January 2012 and a member of Thousand Experts Plan of China. Dr Chen obtained his BSc degree in Jan. 1982, and MSc degree in 1984 in China. Between 1984 and 1987 he was a lecturer in mechanical engineering at Jimei Navigation Institute in Xiamen, China. From Sept. 1987 until Oct. 1990, he studied turbocharger turbine at UMIST, England and obtained his PhD degree in 1990. In UK he first worked at Imperial College and later jointed Honeywell Turbo Technologies UK. Dr Chen's research interest is on aerodynamics of radial turbomachinery. He has published more than 30 articles in peer reviewed international journals and conferences.
