Materials design through interface engineering

“I grew up on the bank of longest river in China, and came to MIT after I finished my bachelor degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2007. After spending two years to get a master degree in nuclear reactor engineering, I started my PhD on the project of stability of multilayer nanocomposites under irradiation with Prof. Demkowicz.”
