Prof. Xiaoguang Wang, Chengdu University of Technology, China
Xiaoguang Wang is a Professor in the Department of New Energy Science and Engineering at Chengdu University of Technology. He leads the research team of Geothermal Energy Development and Geological Carbon Dioxide Sequestration in the State Key Laboratory of Oil and Gas Reservoir Geology and Exploitation, he also serves as deputy director of the research division of Geothermal Energy and Carbon Sequestration at the Tianfu Yongxing Laboratory. Previous to this he was Researcher at HydroSciences Montpellier (HSM) UMR5569 CNRS-UM-IRD. He holds BSc. degree from China University of Petroleum (East China), MSc. degree from University of Oklahoma and PhD degree from Imperial College London, all in Petroleum Engineering. Professor Wang's research interests are in flow and transport through porous and fractured media with applications to geothermal energy production, geological carbon storage, oil and gas recovery, and contaminant transport and clean-up in polluted aquifers. He performs experimental, theoretical and numerical research into many aspects of flow and transport in porous and fractured systems, including numerical modelling of coupled THMC processes, and inverse modelling using optimization and artificial intelligence methods. He has published over 40 scientific papers and obtained 8 research grants at the national and provincial level.
