Dr.Sulin Zhang Visited ICAM and gave a lecture “In situ lithiation mechanics of Silicon and beyond: when mechanics meets electrochemistry” in the Sencond Meeting Room on Friday, July 18th, 2014. Prof. Zishun Liu host the seminar.
Dr. Sulin Zhang received his PhD from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2002. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Engineering Science and Mechanics at Penn State University (PSU) and an affiliated faculty in the Department of Biomedical Engineering of PSU. Dr. Zhang’s research interests include multiscale modeling and experimental characterization of nanostructured materials, energy storage materials, soft matters, living cells, and of processes that occur at nano-bio interfaces. He is particularly interested in the role of mechanics in Materials, Biology, Electrochemistry. Dr. Zhang is the recipient of The Oak Ridge Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award in 2006, and the Early Career Development Award from National Science Foundation in 2007. He is the founding editor of the new journal “Extreme Mechanics Letters”, which will be launched this summer.
