I have been working as a research associate at Imperial since 2020. My research focusses on the mechanistic understanding of the deformation behaviour and mechanical performance of metallic and ceramic materials, through multiscale experimental characterisation of the microstructure, mechanical properties and deformation mechanisms.

I received my BEng in Materials Science and Engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2015, MSc from Imperial in 2016, and PhD from Imperial in 2020. My PhD thesis concerns microstructural characterisation and mechanical testing of zirconium alloys and hydrides, and was awarded the Prize in Advanced Materials Characterisation Techniques by Department of Materials.
