Assistant Professor @ San Diego State University
Dr. Wenwu Xu received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Beijing University of Technology (China) in 2011. He then pursued postdoctoral research at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (Germany) in 2012 and The University of Manchester (U.K.) in 2013-2015. In 2016, he joined the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at University of California, Merced as a visiting researcher and then as a lecturer. Dr. Xu’s research interests include computational Multiscale Modeling of Materials (continuum, microscopic, atomistic, and quantum mechanics) and characterization of material microstructure at multiple scales from 2D (electron microscopy) to 3D (synchrotron X-ray computed tomography), and 4D (time-resolved tomography). His research emphasizes the coupling of experimental and theoretical investigations to reveal complex structural and functional behaviour of material systems at the nanoscale.
