Biographical Information

  Prof. Xuejun JIN received his Ph.D. degree in Materials Physics from the Shanghai Institute of Metallurgy, the Chinese Academy of Science, in Shanghai, China in 1997. His Bachelor and Master degrees were received at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing, China in 1991 and 1994, respectively. From 1997 to 1999, he worked as a post-doctor with the School of Materials Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China. Since June 1999, he has been with School of Materials Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where he is currently Professor and associate dean of the School of Materials Science and Engineering. He was a visiting scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA (Jan. 2001 – Dec. 2001) and a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge, UK (June 2012 – July 2012). Professor Jin is a member of both International Advisory Committee on Martensitic Transformation (ICOMAT) and Scientific Committee on Internal Friction and Mechanical Spectra (ICIFMS). Professor Jin is on the editorial board of International Journal of Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering. He is also elected as a Chairman, the Shanghai Society of Heat Treatment since May 2012.


Research Interests

  Professor Jin's research interests include three aspects such as phase transformations and microstructure design for advanced high strength steels, shape memory alloys and super-elasticity and size dependence of phase stability for nano-structured materials.
