Dr. Hongyang Ma received his Ph. D. degree from Peking University in 2003, China. He then joined the research group and worked in the area of nanofibrous composite membranes for water purification. He is currently a research scientist and mainly focusing on fabrication of highly permeable nanocomposite membranes for desalination.
Professor Lindström is a visiting scientist from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden. Lindström has experiences encompassing both academic (KTH), institutional (Swedish Pulp and Paper Research Institute Innventia, now RISE) and has also worked ten years in the Paper/Board industry. Lindströms background training is in polymer and physical chemistry and colloid and surface science, but the focus has been on various unit operations in pulp and papermaking, particularly in the areas of paper chemistry and paper forming issues. His focus has been on manufacture and up-scaling of years. During the past nanocellulosic materials and various industrial applications of these materials. As a senior scientist, he will devote his efforts to the use and integration of nanocellulosic materials in the area of water treatments.
