Biography

Shuguang Deng joined Arizona State University in August 2015 as a Professor of Chemical Engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy. Dr. Deng’s group is currently working in three areas that are relevant to sustainable development: 1). Synthesis, characterization and application of porous materials as adsorbents, catalysts and membranes for sustainable energy and clean water; 2). Development of efficient processes for converting biomass to bioenergy and bio-products; 3). Applications of adsorption technology in environmental protection: water treatment, carbon dioxide capture and utilization. Dr. Deng has received several awards in his career, including Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Energy Conservation (National University of Science & Technology, Moscow, Russia, 2013); Westhafer Award for Excellence in Research and Creative Activity (New Mexico State University, 2012), University Research Distinguished Career Award (New Mexico State University, 2011), Millionaire Researcher (New Mexico State University, 2010), College of Engineering Distinguished Bromilow Excellence in Research Award (New Mexico State University, 2009); Bob Davis Endowed Professorship (New Mexico State University, 2005), Innovation Excellence Award (BOC, 2001), and Innovation Achievement Award (BOC, 1999). As of August 2015, Dr. Deng has published 145 referred journal papers, holds 16 patents. His publications have received over 3000 SCI citations (with H index of 29).
