Research Area: My main research topic is by combining microstructure characterization (OM, SEM, TEM/STEM) and electrochemical techniques to investigate the corrosion mechanisms of Mg alloys and impacts of alloy microstructure. I’ve also worked on oxidation behavior of Ti and Ti-Al alloys, and precipitation kinetics of Ti3Al phase inside Ti-Al alloys.
