Personal profile


Dr. Xiong Xiao is a research associate of the Fluid Science and Resources (FSR) Group at the University of Western Australia (UWA) with experience in the field of thermodynamic and transport properties. He joined UWA in 2017 as a PhD student with his research focus on heat capacity measurements of hydrocarbon mixtures and refrigerants via differential scanning calorimetry, and the model improvement for thermophysical properties. The achieved experimental results and the improved models contribute to the industry for a better understanding in thermodynamic behaviour of hydrocarbon mixtures and refrigerants. Additionally, a new EOS for solid benzene has been developed with the ability to describe all the thermodynamic properties. Xiong completed his PhD degree in July 2021 and worked as a Research Associate since January 2021. He has received several major awards including International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics (IACT) Junior Award, Best Presenter at Present Around the World, and IChemE-Engineers Australia Postgraduate Excellence Award. His current research activities include measurement and modelling in thermophysical properties of nitrate solutions, hydrogen enriched natural gas, ammonia mixtures, liquefied natural gas, new generation refrigerants, and Swan river/ocean water systems. Dr. Xiao maintained on-going collaboration with other top fluid science groups in the world including Imperial College London, Ruhr-University Bochum, Chemnitz University of Technology, Murdoch University, Monash University, Deakin University, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, USA), Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science, and Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (TIPC-CAS).
