Peiwen Li

Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Li is a professor in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Arizona. His background area is on thermo-science for energy and power engineering. He currently leads a DOE funded Multi-University Research and Investigation project to develop a new generation high temperature thermal storage and heat transfer fluid for concentrated solar thermal power. His research work focuses on solar thermal energy storage technologies, measurement and evaluation of high temperature heat transfer fluids for solar thermal energy application, electrochemical and heat/mass transfer processes in fuel cells and electrolysis cells, fuel processing and reforming for hydrogen production, and heat transfer and fluid flow in energy and water technologies.
