Yi Ouyang is an assistant professor at the Laboratory for Chemical Technology of Ghent University. He is a former FWO postdoctoral researcher focusing on the process intensification of CO2 capture.

His main research interests lie in process intensification in general and in particular the development of process intensification technologies aided by multi-scale computation and modelling. This includes but is not limited to: development of novel reactors, visualization of transport phenomena, mixing/heat/mass transfer performance assessment, computational fluid dynamics simulation (multiphase flow, turbulence flow and reactive flow, etc.), process simulation, scale-up and optimization. He has extensive expertise in the development of vortex units and rotating packing beds targeting various applications.
