Dr Ying Zeng

As an Assistant Professor, Ying’s research at the Southwest Jiaotong University is mainly on understanding/modelling the mechanic behaviours and microstructural evolution of Mg alloys at the microscale and atomic scale. To further her research Ying reached out to The School of Materials due to the specialist HRDIC knowledge, to enable her to further explore the slip activity and strain localization.

Ying’s current research through LightForm focuses on quantitative measurement of the slip activity and strain localisation in Mg alloys with Li addition at room temperature and the quantitative measurement of the strain localization in Mg-Sn-Y alloys with different precipitates.
