Dr. Li-Chiang Lin was born in 1983 in Taiwan. He received his B.S. and M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from National Taiwan University. In 2014, he completed his Ph.D. study in Chemical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley (2010-2014). Dr. Lin joined the Faculty at The Ohio State University in Fall 2016 as assistant professor, chemical and biomolecular engineering.


His research interests lie in the energy field with a focus on the computational materials discovery for energy-related applications such as gas separations to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. His research makes use of molecular simulation techniques to study porous materials including zeolites, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent-organic frameworks (COFs), graphene-based materials, etc. as adsorbents and/or membranes. The outcome of his research has identified a number of promising materials as well as established important structure-property relationships, providing useful guidelines for the development of new materials.
