Dr. Yuhua Duan is a Physical Scientist within the Research & Innovation Center at National
Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) of the United States Department of Energy (US DOE). He
obtained his BS in Chemistry, a MS in Chemical Physics, a PhD in Physics from the University of
Science and Technology of China, and a MS in Computer Engineering from the University of
Minnesota. Before he joined in NETL in 2005, Dr. Duan had worked in the fields of condensed
matter of physics, chemical physics and bioinformatics at several international research groups in
China, Brazil, Switzerland, and the United States. His current research areas include development
of sorbents for gas separation technologies and energetic materials for novel batteries, fuel cells,
and gas sensors with quantum information, and multi-scale modeling of energy systems. Dr.
Duan’s expertise and interest span both atomistic scale simulations and multi-scale modeling of
materials and processes applied in energy technologies.
