Plenary Speakers

Saturday 16 February: 9:15am, Room 301.G050

Huijun Zhao is a Professor and Director of the Centre for Clean Environment and Energy at Griffith University, Australia. He is also the Director of the Centre for Environmental and Energy Nanomaterials at the Institute of Solid State Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has expertise in energy and environmental nanomaterials, water source control and management system, field-based sensing technologies and aquatic environmental quality assessment. One of his current pursuits is to explore new means to unlock the catalytic powers of nonprecious materials as high performance catalysts for important catalysis reactions.

Saturday 16 February: 9:55am, Room 301.G050

Michel Bellet is a Professor at Mines ParisTech – PSL Research University, France. He is based in Sophia Antipolis, near Nice, working in CEMEF, a research center dedicated to the study of material forming. His research activities principally deal with the study of processes involving solidification: casting, welding, additive manufacturing. More precisely, he is especially interested in the experimental study and the finite element modelling of the thermomechanical effects. He is also responsible of the specialty “Materials” at Mines ParisTech and is deputy head of the Department “Mechanics and Materials”.

Sunday 17 February: 8:40am, Room 301.G050

Dr. Y. Morris Wang is a Deputy Group Leader for the Nanoscale Integration Science Group of the Materials Science Division at Lawrence Livermore National Laborary, Livermore, CA 94550, USA. He obtained his PhD in materials science and two master degrees, all from the Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Wang is a Fellow of American Physical Society (2014) and a winner of Nano50 Innovator Award. His group’s recent research interest includes additive manufacturing, mechanical behavior of nanostructured metals, lithium ion batteries, and fusion targets.

Sunday 17 February: 9:20am, Room 301.G050

Prof. Simon Ringer is the Director of Core Research Facilities, the University of Sydney, Australia, where he provides University-wide leadership of major research infrastructure strategy, planning and operations. His research focuses on atomic-scale materials design by using a materials science and engineering approach to learn how small groups of atoms in special architectures—atomic clusters—can create materials with remarkable properties. Applications include semiconductors, catalyst nanoparticles, and new ultra-strong lightweight alloys.
