Biography

Dr. Yang is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in City University of Hong Kong. His research focuses on the innovative design and fabrication of advanced metallic materials for structural and functional applications, including the high-entropy alloys, intermetallic materials, high-temperature superalloys, deep cryogenic alloys and electrocatalysis materials. His current work is primarily focused on the control of nanoprecipitation, grain-boundary characters, and atomic structures by using multiple state-of-the-art techniques, such as the 3D atom probe tomography (3D-APT), high-resolution transmission electron microscope (HETEM), and 3D printing.
