Dr. Jian Song is a postdoctoral researcher in the Clean Energy Processes (CEP) Laboratory at Imperial College London. He received his B.Eng. degree and Ph.D. degree in Power Engineering and Engineering Thermophysics from Tsinghua University in 2013 and 2018, respectively. Dr. Song’s research interests focus on clean and efficient system for energy conversion, mainly including ORC and S-CO2 cycle systems. The detailed research topics involve cycle innovation, working fluid selection, system parameter optimization and component design for energy system that can be applied in waste heat recovery, solar, geothermal and other areas.
