Research areas:
By using electron transmission microscopy and atomistic simulation as main approaches, his group focus their research on mechanical behavior and microstructure evolution of materials in nano- and micro-scale, to enhance the understanding of the underlying mechanisms for the strengthening and failure process, and formulate a physic model for the selection and design of stronger and safer new materials, which is the most needed tool for the new energy society.
