Overview

I am a Lecturer and an academic member of the Magnetic Materials and Application (MAGMA) and the Magnetics and Materials research groups.

My research interests are centred on understanding and applying the relationships between the microstructures and the magnetic properties of magnetic materials. This includes but not limited to the following areas:

  • Non-destructive evaluation of microstructures using electromagnetic and magnetic techniques;
  • Microstructural magnetic hysteresis modelling
  • Microstructure and magnetic property characterisation
  • Finite Element modelling of electromagnetic sensor systems

Biography

I joined Cardiff University as a Lecturer in November 2020. Before that, I worked as a Research Fellow on a number of EPSRC and EU funded projects in the area of non-destructive evaluation of steel microstructure at University of Birmingham and then University of Warwick. I obtained my PhD in electrocrystallisation and electronic materials in 2010 at Loughborough University, my MEng in Materials Processing Engineering in 2003 and BEng in Welding in 2001, both at Harbin Institute of Technology in China.

Teaching

I currently teach part of the Electrical Technology module for first-year Mechanical Engineering students supporting the module leader. 

Supervision

I am interested in supervising Master's projects or research students in the area of magnetic materials and applications including but not limited to: 

  • Magnetic materials characterisation, processing and applications
  • Magnetic non-destructive evaluation and testing
  • Magnetic hysteresis modelling
  • Finite Element modelling of electromagnetic systems
  • Microstructure - physical property - mechanical property relationships
