Research Interests

Focus on nonequilibrium partitioning phase transformation calculations and materials design based on the experimental investigations (calorimeter measurement,diffusion measurements, x-ray, SEM and TEM), first-principles calculation, computational thermodynamics and kinetics. A computational-tool for nonequilibrium partitioning phase transformations calculation is developed to predict the relationships among the chemistry, microstructure, and physical properties of the nonequilibrium materials.
