Biographical details

Dr. Xianghai An received his PhD from Shenyang National Laboratory for Materials Sciences, Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012. After receiving his PhD degree, he commenced with the School of Aerospace, Mechatronic and Mechanical Engineering (AMME) at The University of Sydney (USYD) as a research fellow, qualifying as a DVCR Research Fellow (Sydney Society of Fellows) in 2014. He is currently a Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) Fellow supported by Australia Research Council (ARC). Dr An was also conferred to the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship by Humboldt Foundation in Germany in 2016 (relinquished) and is one of first recipients of the Robinson Fellowships - named after Sir Robert Robinson, who was the first Nobel Prize winner from the University of Sydney.

Dr. Xianghai An’s research mainly focuses on mechanical behaviour, microstructural design and structure-property relationship of advanced metallic materials at hierarchical length scales, metallic additive manufacturing, advanced materials processing and nanotechnology
