PhD | Environmental Engineering/Engineering Mechanics, Columbia University
Dr. Xu’s research background stems from solid mechanics and extends comprehensively into interdisciplinary fields, i.e., energy and electrochemistry with a broad spectrum of industrial application. Dr. Xu is particularly interested in “user-inspired” science. Currently, his group focuses on the following research topics: (1) Battery safety, durability and multifunctionality (including multiphysics modeling, multiscale simulation, machine-learning based modeling and operando characterization of safety behaviors); (2) Theoretical analysis and design of advanced materials and structures for impact protection/mitigation.
Dr. Jun Xu now serves as the Executive committee member of Advanced Energy System Division, American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME). He also serves as Associate Editor of ASME Journal of Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage, Editor of Scientific Reports. He has so far published more than 130 peer-reviewed papers with more than 5,959 citations, H-index = 44.
