Dr Rongshan Qin

Senior Lecturer- Chemical and computational metallurgy

Dr. Rongshan Qin joined Imperial College London in November 2009 from POSTECH, where he was a Research Full Professor in Computational Metallurgy. He obtained PhD from the Institute of Metal Research at Chinese Academy of Sciences, worked subsequently as a Research Fellow at Brunel University, Research Associate at University of Cambridge and Senior Scientific Officer at Daresbury Laboratory before joining POSTECH as Associate Professor in 2006.

His is interested in the computational and experimental metallurgies. This includes the application of the phase-field model, lattice Boltzmann equation, dissipative particle dynamics, smoothed particle hydrodynamics and cellular automata to the simulation of microstructure evolution in alloys processing, and the implication of the pulsed electric current and pulsed magnetic field in alloys manufacturing.

He holds a TATA and Royal Academy of Engineering Senior Research Fellowship.

For a highlight of his current research, please read the news in Materials World, Vol.21, Issue 3, Page 19 (2013).
