Dr Dong is an ARC DECRA Fellow in the School of Engineering, his research mainly focuses on airborne particle inhalation exposure characteristics and respiratory health issues. He is also teaching in Heat Transfer and CFD courses.
Jingliang Dong, Ph.D., is an ARC DECRA Fellow at School of Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Biomechanical Engineering from RMIT University in 2015. After graduating, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Chongqing University, China, and research fellow at RMIT University. In 2020, he was awarded a prestigious award and funding – Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA), by the Australian Research Council (ARC) to assist him in establishing and leading a research team to conduct particle inhalation exposure risk analysis and cross-species data extrapolation between animal human airways. Besides the cross-species inhalation exposure research, he also extended his research interests to a wider range, including inhalation therapy and targeted drug delivery, hemodynamic study of cardiovascular arteries, heat and mass transfer in fluid machinery, air pollution in urban street canyons and tunnels. Within 7 years after Ph.D. graduation, he has led 2 special issues, authored 60 journal articles, 15 conference proceedings and 2 book chapters, with over 1000 citations and a h-index of 20 (Sep 2022, Google Scholar).
Dr Dong's research interests include:
- Interspecies inhalation exposure analysis between human and laboratory animals;
- Targeted drug-aerosol delivery in the human respiratory system;
- Hemodynamic study of blood flow in carotid and coronary arteries;
- Mass and heat transfer in fluid machinery, including steam ejectors, annular water-air jet pumps, helical coil heat exchangers;
- Pollutants transport analysis and air quality management in urban street canyons and road tunnels.
Current Role: Chief Investigator, currently leading an ARC Discovery DE project, which aims to develop a new virtual platform to resolve particle inhalation exposure characteristics in the nasal airway of animal surrogates and humans.
