Professor Kuo-Lun Tung
Kuo-Lun (Allan) Tung, is now the Director of the R&D Centre for
Membrane Technology (CMT) at Chung Yuan University in Taipei, Taiwan with a specialty
of research and development on membrane filtration applications for 18 years. Allan
Tung was born in 1968 in Taipei, Taiwan.
He received the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 1991, 1994 and 1998,
respectively, from the
With a solid training background of filtration theory since 1990, Allan Tung has been doing research in the area of membrane filtrations for more than 18 years with a strong research interest in the fundamental study of membrane fouling and applications on downstream processing for bioseparation and water/wastewater treatments using experimental and computational methods. Recent research topics include fundamental researches of membrane fouling and filtration mechanism of deformable particle, CFD analysis of fluid flow through textile filter media and porous membranes, molecular dynamic study of transport phenomena in membranes, computer simulation of multi-phase flow and membrane module design for water/wastewater treatments. Some of the developed patented technologies, say feed spacer design technology for spiral wound membrane module, have been transfer to industries.
Allan is also active in the international affairs in membrane filtration discipline. He is now a council member of The Filtration Society in UK and also serving as the deputy secretary/managing committee member of the membrane technology specialist group in international water association (IWA), Taiwan representative Secretary of Asia Pacific Desalination Association (APDA), Taiwan deputy representative of Taiwan, International Delegates on Filtration (INDEFI), and executive committee member of International Recycling Society (IRS).
