Personal details

I received my BSc in Applied Mechanics from Shenyang University of Technology in 1982, MSc in Computational Mechanics from Dalian University of Technology in 1985 and PhD in Mechanics of Composite Materials from Shanghai Jiao-Tong University in 1988. In 1990, I was a visiting fellow at the Civil Engineering Department of Liverpool University, working on impact damage of concrete structures. From 1991 to 1994, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Engineering Department of Cambridge University, working on creep failure of engineering materials. From 1994 to 2006, I was a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and then Reader at the University of Surrey. My research at Surrey focused on sintering science and technology of advanced ceramics. In 2006, I joined the University of Leicester to take up a Chair in Mechanics of Materials in the Department of Engineering.

Teaching

I teach structure mechanics and finite element stress analysis. My lectures cover mechanics of engineering structures, energy methods and variational principles, constitutive laws (such as plasticity and creep) of engineering materials and advanced topics and case studies of finite element analysis. I am a Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.
