Research Areas: structural materials in new energy system, optimization of properties of material exposed to extreme environmental condition, evolution of dislocation behavior in nano- and micro-scale, strengthening and fracture mechanics
Dr. Shuai Wang received his Doctor degree in Hokkaido University, Japan, in 2013. After graduation, he became WPI postdoctoral researcher in International Institute of Carbon Neutral Energy Research (WPI-I2CNER) in Kyushu University, Japan. From 2015 to 2018, he worked as an associate researcher at University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. By using electron transmission microscopy and atomistic simulation as main approaches, he and his group focus their research on mechanical behavior and microstructure evolution of materials in nano- and micro-scale, to enhance the understanding of the underlying mechanisms for the strengthening and failure process, and formulate physic model for the selection and design of stronger and safer new materials, which is the most needed tool for the new energy society. He attended key projects related to the research of defects behavior and mechanical property of new energy material that sponsored by the Japanese Ministry of Education, National Science Foundation in the USA, and Department of Energy in the USA. In 2017, he has been nominated to become a WPI Visiting Faculty in I2CNER. He is the author of one textbook and more than 30 research papers in the international journal, five of them are published as the first and corresponding author in Acta Materialia.
