Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering

Dr. Jerry Y.S. Lin is a Regents' Professor at Arizona State University in Tempe.  He is editor of Journal of Membrane Science.  Prior to joining ASU in January, 2005,  Dr. Lin was a professor of chemical engineering and co-director of the NSF Center for Membrane Applied Science and Technology at University of Cincinnati.   He served as department chair of chemical engineering at ASU in 2006-2009.

Dr. Lin received B.S. (1982) from Zhejiang University in China, M.S. (1985) and Ph.D (1988) from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in the U.S., all in chemical engineering. He was a post-doctoral staff member at the University of Twente in the Netherlands (1988-1991).  Dr. Lin joined the faculty of Chemical Engineering at University of Cincinnati as an assistant professor in 1991 and was promoted to full professor in 1998.    As of Aug. 2017, Dr. Lin has published 280 refereed journal publications, holds 9 patents, and given over 200 invited lectures in academia, industry and research institutes around world; 

Dr. Lin received several awards, including  NSF Career Award (1995), Cheung Kong Scholar Award (2001), AIChE Institute Award for Excellence in Industrial Gases Technology (2009).  He is a fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (since 2009), and American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)(since 2013).   Dr. Lin's services to the scientific community include serving as a referee for about 50 journals and 20 funding agencies, and  co-chairing the 1998 NAMS Annual Meeting, the 1994 MRS Symposium on Materials for Separation Technology, 2001 ACS Symposium on Advanced Membrane Materials.  He was the conference chairman of the 2004 International Conference on Inorganic Membranes, and was chair of 2010 Gordon Research Conference on Membrane Materials and Processes, and 2013 North American Membrane Society annual meeting.
