Biographical Information

  Bo Yan majors in Material Processing Engineering and always engages in CAE and multi-scale simulation in polymer processing such as plastic injection molding (PIM) and resin transfer molding (RTM). Bo obtained PhD from School of Materials Science and Engineering of Huazhong University of Science & Technology in 2008. Then Bo joined School of Materials Science and Engineering of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He served as a lecturer from 2008 to 2012 and was promoted to an Associate Professor since 2013. During 2010-2011, He went to Department of Mechanical Engineering, IUPUI, USA for one year and conducted research on the molding and simulation of lithium ion battery safety issues.
