Biography

Dr. Hu received his Ph. D. in Computational Materials Science, Pennsylvania State University at 2004, and then worked as a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow in Los Alamos National Laboratory. He jointed Pacific Northwest National Laboratory at 2007. He is a computational material scientist with more than 20 years of experience in atomistic and mesoscale modeling. His research mainly focuses on developing mesoscale phase-field models with thermodynamic and kinetic properties from atomistic simulations and experiments to understand the mechanisms and kinetics of microstructure and property evolution in alloys, multiphase ferroelectric and ferromagnetic materials, self-assembled nanostructures, battery materials, and nuclear materials. He has more than 110 peer-reviewed publications.
