Renowned scholar Professor Jinhua Sun from our laboratory has been elected as a Fellow of the Combustion Institute for 2023, marking him as one of three scholars from China to achieve this prestigious honour among the 15 global awardees.

With a distinguished career as a Chair Professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) since his introduction to the country in 2002, Professor Sun has actively contributed to the fields of combustion and fire science both domestically and internationally. His pivotal roles in various national and international committees, including his position as the Vice Chairman of the USTC Fire Laboratory's Academic Sub-Committee, exemplify his dedication to advancing fire safety measures across industries.

His contributions have not only advanced the understanding of fire dynamics but have also found practical applications in prominent national and international institutions and companies.

Professor Sun's groundbreaking research in innovative energy, industrial and architectural fire safety, particularly in the realm of lithium-ion battery and hydrogen fire safety, has resulted in the publication of over 360 SCI papers in esteemed publications such as PECS, CNF, PCI, and FSJ, and has garnered more than 12,000 citations. Notably, more than 50 of his papers have been featured in journals with impact factors exceeding 10. His extensive contributions include authoring eight academic books and being involved in five national and group standards. He has been invited to speak at 40 international and domestic academic conferences, including the International Conference on Fire Safety Science and the International Symposium on Industrial Safety and Protection.

Recognised with over 20 national and international awards, including the recent acknowledgement by the Combustion Institute for his outstanding contributions to fundamental research in building and new energy fire combustion and flame dynamics, Professor Jinhua Sun continues to be a leading figure in international combustion, energy, and fire safety.

Established in 1954, the Combustion Institute remains a pinnacle academic organisation in the field of global combustion, and the title of Fellow represents a lifelong honour celebrating exceptional contributions to the field.
