Biographical Information

Co-Head of SJTU-ZhongFu company joint research center

  He received BSc (1994) and MSc (1999) at HeBei University of Technology, and a Ph.D degree (2006) at Shanghai Jiaotong University. In the period before his doctorate study, he was a lecture and then associate professor in HBUT.

Research Interests

  He locates interests on total system of solidification process, including melt structure, nucleation and growth of crystal, especially on the effect of solute on morphology of dendrite. About engineering technology, he developed several patent technologies on purification of high purity aluminum which had been industrilized. The first piece of 5N5 (99.9995 wt % Al) aluminum ingot and 6N ingot in China are fabricated by the technique.
