Zhenjie completed an MSc with Distinction in Advanced Engineering Materials at The University of Manchester and was awarded Bachelor Degree in Physics from both Jilin University (China) and Tomsk Polytechnic University (Russia).

Zhenjie has recently joined the Advanced Metallic System Centre for Doctoral Training and is completing a PhD at The University of Manchester which focuses on the effects of intermetallic compound particles on the formability and mechanical properties of the recycled 6xxx alloy, using the Python programming and CPFEM to gain an understanding of effect of primary particle size distribution, volume fraction and spatial distribution of intermetallic particles on recycled 6xxx series aluminium alloys and try to improve the ductility and formability of them.
