Research Topics and Experience:
The main research topic of Dr Ming Yan in SUSTC will be 3D printing of metals and alloys especially Ti, Al and steels. He aims to build up a 3D-printing lab for R&D and also for providing first-hand experience to undergraduate and postgraduate students. Dr Yan has extensive experience in powder metallurgy of titanium, aluminum and amorphous alloys. He also knows well about compositional design and characterization of metallic glasses from his past studies.
