Overview

Professor Geoff Wang received his BEng in 1983 and MEng in 1986 and PhD in 1989 from Northeastern University of China and specialized in process metallurgy focusing on iron- and steel-making. He worked in Wuhan Iron and Steel University (currently the Wuhan University of Science and Technology) as Lecturer, Associate Professor and served as Head of the Department of Metallurgy, Director of the Postgraduate School during 1989-1996. He was Board of Directors of Iron-making Branch of the Chinese Society for Metal (CSM). Before joining the University of Queensland in 1996, he was a visiting Professor at the School of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of New South Wales in 1995. He has significantly contributed to the research area of chemical metallurgy, energy and environmental technologies, including coal utilization, ironmaking technology development, coalbed methane development, and carbon dioxide capture and sequestration.

Professor Geoff Wang has established strong collaborations with a number of Iron and Steel companies in China and Australia and has extensive links with Baosteel and other Universities and research institutions in China. He is a Guest Professor of China University of Mining and Technology since 2006 and a Visiting Professor of Henan Polytechnic University since 2010.

Professor Wang is author of a monograph entitled "Pulverized Coal Injection Technology for Blast Furnaces" and has over 100 original journal publications and about 60 refereed conference papers, included a patent.
