PhD Title: Single Particle Reaction Modelling of Hydrogen and Ammonia Direct Reduction Iron: Reaction Behaviour, Kinetics, and Mechanisms

Jialiang’s research focuses on the behaviour and mechanisms of iron ore direct reduction by ammonia and hydrogen. His research will use numerical simulation to investigate gas-solid reactions between ammonia, hydrogen and iron ore through the evolution of detailed transport phenomena, reaction kinetics, and phase changes. The goal of his research is to contribute to the application of a decarbonised and sustainable ironmaking method.

Jialiang is a graduate of Nanjing Agricultural University with an MRes (Master of Research, Distinction) degree in Engineering. Now, he is pursuing his PhD at the University of Western Australia under the supervision of Dongke Zhang from the Centre for Energy.
