About me

I currently work in the Unit of Stuctures, department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). I became Docent (Assoc. Prof./Senior Lecturer level qualification, Subject: Sustainable Metallurgy) in 2022, and I am responsible for the thermo-physical property analysis section in Hultgren Lab in MSE. Meanwhile, I am a Digital Futures faculty member at Digital Futures, KTH, and working group member of Industrial Transformation Platform.

I graduate in KTH to get a PhD degree in 2015, and I received my bachelor and master degree in Northeastern University, China. Subsequently, I continued to work as a postdoctoral fellow at McMaster University, Canada between 2015 and 2017, and I am back to KTH to work since August 2017. I have also been a visiting researcher in Tohoku University in 2018 and 2019. Besides I keep the close research collaboration with e.g. Hanyang University (Korea), IIT Bombay (India), etc. Welcome to contact for visiting/exhange studies (CSC, JSPS, etc.).

My research experience and interest focus on below issues:

  • Sustainable metallurgy.
  • Inclusion/precipitate, microstructure and property correlation in engineering materials in particular steels.
  • Materials design for high-performance alloys using e.g. digitalization tools (AI), thermodynamic modeling, thermo-physical characterization, etc.
  • In-situ characterizaton of metals and ceramics utilizing multiscale tools including confocal laser scanning microscope.
