Expert Bio

Jing Zhang's research interests are broadly centered on understanding the processing-structure-property relationships in advanced ceramics and metals for optimal performance in application. To this end, the research group employs a blend of experimental, theoretical, and numerical approaches, focusing on several areas, including:

* Processing-microstructure-property relationships: thermal barrier coating, solid oxide fuel cell and lithium-ion battery

* Physics-based multiscale models: ab initio, molecular dynamics, discrete element models and finite element models

* Coupled phenomena: diffusion-thermomechanical properties

* Additive manufacturing or 3-D printing: Additive manufacturing materials characterization, additive manufacturing process (direct metal laser sintering) models
