Brief Bio

Prof. Hongfei Zheng has been carrying out research in the area of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficient Systems in the past twenty years. He has a wide range of experience in solar energy applications including hot water, desalination, air conditioning, solar concentration and daylighting. He began his research interest in solar energy applications since he was a lecturer at Guangxi University in 1980s. Prof Zheng started his PhD study at the University of Science and Technology of China in September 1996. Since completion of his PhD in 1999, he had worked in Xian Jiaotong University for two years as a postdoctoral researcher and associate professor. During that time he completed independently a research project funded by the Postdoctoral Management Committee of China. From 2002, Prof. Hongfei Zheng has been working at Beijing Institute of Technology. His research has mainly been focused on three areas: 1) solar desalination, 2) solar concentration and 3) optical fiber daylight guiding. Prof. Zheng has published 180 refereed papers and 5 monographs. He has obtained 18 patents. He is the principal investigator for 5 important research projects respectively funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (No. 50576004, 51076016 and U1261119) and National “863” Hi-Tech Development Program of China (No. 2007AA05Z433, 2013AA102407-2). He has been invited to serve as a session chair at several international conferences such as the International Conference for ISES Solar World Congress, Beijing, China in 2007, and the International Conference on Sustainable Energy technologies, Shanghai, 2010.
