Biographical Information

  Dr. Jianfeng Wan is an Associate Professor of Materials Science & Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in Shanghai, China. He received B.S. from the Science and Technology University of Beijing in 1995, M.S. from Lanzhou Jiao Tong University (1998) and Ph.D. from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (2001). Then he worked as a postdoctor in the department of physics at SJTU for two years. In 2003 he went to the school of materials science and engineering at SJTU. Dr.Wan, as a visiting scholar, studied and worked at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 2007 to 2008.

Research Interests

  Dr.Wan’s primary research interests include (a) Advanced intelligent  materials and devices, such as antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, (b) Multi-scale computational science of materials by using  First-Principle, Molecular dynamics and Phase-Field to confirm the present experimental facts and to predict the new materials in future, (c) Nonlinear Physics during Phase Transition, trying to establish a bridge between the nature of transition and the micro-phenomenon and to extend the research field of solid state transformation.
