Junhe Lian

My main research focuses are in line with the multiscale modeling of material mechanics in the framework of the ICME concept. Relying on the advanced microstructure characterization and in-situ testing methods from nano to component level, I develop models and tools to build the process-structure-property-performance relationship. The main topics include micro and macro plasticity, localization, damage, fracture, toughness, and fatigue. Deformation and failure analysis of Lithium-ion batteries and data-driven model development for material mechanics are my ongoing research.
