­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Dr Kaiwei (Kevin) Chu is specialized in the modelling and simulation of complex particle-fluid flows that are ubiquitous in nature and industries and "Kinematics of particles or granular materials" is one of the 125 most challenging scientific issues published by Science in 2005. He carried out extensive pioneering work to elucidate the fundamentals of complex particle-fluid flows by developing and applying combined approach of computational fluid dynamics and discrete element method (CFD-DEM), leading to >80 publications, with total citation times of 1444 (1243 without self-citation) and H-index of 19 via the SCI core selection (as at 13 Sep. 2019). He has 3 first-authored articles belonging to“Most Cited Articles”and 7 first-authored articles belonging to“Top25 Hottest Articles”in their respective journals. He obtained his PhD degree from UNSW Australia in 2010 and is current a Distinguished Professor at Shandong University of China (Shandong University is ranked around 20th in China and 200-300th worldwide by Academic Ranking of World Universities).
