    Center for Advancing Materials Performance from the Nanoscale

    Hysitron Applied Research Center in China,

    State Key Laboratory for Mechanical Behavior of Materials & School of Materials Science and Engineering,

    28 West Xianning Road, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710049, P. R. China


    Director, Center for Advancing Materials Performance from the Nanoscale & Hysitron Applied Research Center, China (HARCC)

    Director, Engineering Research Center for Magnesium-based New Materials

    Deputy Director, State Key Laboratory for Mechanical Behavior of Materials,

    Dean, School of Materials Science and Engineering, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China

    So far, published 80+ papers in peer reviewed journals, including the most prestigious ones such as Science (1), Nature (1), Nature Materials (4), PNAS (2), Nature Communications (10) et al; organized and co-organized 24 international conferences; authored/presented more than 230 talks with more than half of them being invited talks; found and co-found three international research centers and one provincial engineering center.


    My research interests include: 1) probing the properties and advancing the performance of materials from the nanoscale; 2) developing technologies to enable above goals, and 3) accumulate and construct the knowledge system of materials at the micro- and nano- Scale. Currently my research efforts are focused on applying and developing unique quantitative in situ TEM mechanical testing techniques (indentation/compression/bending/tensile/fatigue/fracture + heating/electrical + gas environment).
