Zan Wu

Associate Professor, Senior Lecturer, PhD


Zan Wu has been an Associated Professor (universitetslektor) since 2018.02 at the Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University, Sweden. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China in 2008 and 2013, respectively. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow, a senior researcher, and then he was promoted as tenured Associate Professor in 2018, all at Lund University. He is currently the head of the heat transfer laboratory. He is leading projects granted by various funding agencies, especially the Swedish Research Council.

His research interests are mainly multiphase flow, heat transfer enhancement by micro/nanostructures, boiling and condensation, microreactors, microfluidics and nanofluidics, and renewable energy. These basic research topics can easily find their applications, for example, in heat exchangers (evaporators and condensers) and heat pipes, electronics cooling, MEMS, chemical reactors, biomedical engineering and food engineering. Although Zan’s research works are mainly experimental, he has interests in both experimental and numerical works. He has published more than 130 papers in journals and conferences.

 He currently serves as associate editor of the Heat Transfer Engineering journal
