OSU's Yu Feng selected as a recipient of the 2022 Journal of Aerosol Science Excellence in Research Award
Monday, January 23, 2023
Yu Feng, Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Oklahoma State University was recently named a recipient of the 2022 Journal of Aerosol Science Excellence in Research Award.
In 2020, motivated by the celebration of 50 years of publication of the Journal of Aerosol Science, the JAS editors, editorial advisory board, and publisher elected to establish the Journal of Aerosol Science Excellence in Research (JASER) Award. The annual award, with a nomination period typically from March 1 to June 30th each year, is open to researchers at all career levels. It is intended to acknowledge the quality, originality, and depth of contribution in aerosol research (as defined by scope of the Journal of Aerosol Science) over quantity and acceptance by specific journals. The JASER Award may be bestowed for a single paper or collection of related papers of particular significance to Aerosol Science. Nomination for the JASER Award is demonstrated specifically through an aerosol scientist's peer-reviewed published papers in the five (5) years preceding the award year, with an emphasis on research where the nominee is either the first author or senior/corresponding author. Published papers can be from multiple journals but at least one (1) paper needs to have been published in the Journal of Aerosol Science during the 5-year period.
Professor Yu Feng, Oklahoma State University Dr. Yu Feng is an associate professor in the School of Chemical Engineering at Oklahoma State University, and a center investigator in the Oklahoma Center for Respiratory and Infectious Diseases (OCRID). He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University in 2013, where he also worked as a research assistant professor before joining the faculty at Oklahoma State University. Professor Feng's research focuses on Computational Fluid-Particle Dynamics (CFPD) and Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Modeling, with a specific emphasis on aerosol deposition and drug delivery via the respiratory system. Highlights from his recent research include:
Zhao et al. (2019), using CFPD to examine worker exposure levels to welding fume particulate emissions; Feng et al. (2020), one of the first articles during the COVID-19 pandemic to use state-of-the-art CFPD to examine the transport of droplets and particles expelled during coughing; Hayati et al. (2021), computationally examining interspecies differences in droplet transport and deposition between rat and human lung models; Zhao et al. (2021) developing the first elastic whole lung model, using it computationally to examine different COPD disease condition effects on particle transport and deposition; and Feng et al. (2021), an invited tutorial article describing implementation of CFPD-PBPK modeling.
