Dr. Shipeng Shu
I was born in China. I received my B.S. degree in Applied Physics from University of Science and Technology of China, and Ph.D. degree in Mateirals Science and Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Following some time at University of Wisconsin-Madison, I moved to Northwesturn University to continue my postdoc study.
Prior to joining the group, I studied precipitation processes in metallic alloys under irradiation using both experimental and computational tools. Here, I will continue to focus on precipitation processes, but in Al-based alloys, aiming to design new light-weight precipitation hardened alloys suitable for high-temperature applications.
