Research Interest:

• Corrosion and stress corrosion of materials in nuclear power plant and nuclear waste disposal

• Development of advanced magnesium alloy and its corrosion prevention techniques

• R & D of various coatings, such as nano-composite coatings and nano-composite plating

• Interaction of mechanics and chemistry, including stress corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue and hydrogen embrittlement for various materials

• Corrosion in severe corrosive industrial environments, e.g., high temperature and high pressure, H2S, acidic or alkaline environments

• Service lifetime prediction and failure analysis for engineering structure and components

• R & D of corrosion resistant alloys, such as weathering steel and steels in severe industry environment

• Corrosion behaviors and mechanisms of materials in natural environment (soil, atmosphere and water), the relativity of field exposure and indoor acceleration tests
