Welding Engineering welcomes Xun Liu
Dr. Liu was recently a postdoctoral researcher in the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at University of Michigan. She earned a doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from University of Michigan and earned Master of Science degrees in Materials Science and Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, also from the University of Michigan. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China.
Dr. Liu has a variety of research interests that center on advanced manufacturing processes, including solid state joining of dissimilar materials, hybrid welding, nanocomposite casting and 4D printing. Her expertise extends to both experimental and computational research at the continuum scale.
Her post-doctoral work has focused on experimental-computational methods to advance friction stir spot welding of dissimilar metals, fabrication and characterization of cast aluminum nanocomposites, electrically assisted incremental sheet forming and some prototypes of 4D printing.
