Biographical Information

 Professor of Materials Science & Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1998 from SJTU, Dr. GU performed postdoctoral studies in France at the UTT from 2000 to 2001 and acted as a visiting scholar in USA at physics department of UNLV in 2005.

 Current research investigations involve microstructure control and heat treatment process optimization of high-grade bearing and large forgings for nuclear power, through process modeling and simulation on the advanced forming manufacturing (casting, forging and heat treatment).

 Prof. GU has published more than 80 papers on peer-review journals and holds more than 12 patents. He has led or participated more than 30 research projects and has received a number of awards.
