Dr. Y. (Yongli) Wu


Yongli is a Postdoc Researcher in the Resources and Recycling group, CEG of TU Delft. He obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Northeastern University of China, and PhD degree from Monash University with the research on multiscale modelling of particle–fluid flows. His current research is on the smart extraction of solid particles from a waste flow, combining theoretical insights, simulation and modelling with experiments in the group’s laboratory and in pilot plants.
