C-Mit Seminar Series with Professor XiaochunLi
February 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
High performance bio-metals offer tremendous potential to improve medical systems. However, conventional processing methods in metals manufacturing have reached certain limits in further improving the properties of bio-metals. Incorporation of nanoelements into various functional materials can obtain unusual physical, chemical, and mechanical properties. Here we show a newly discovered mechanism of nanoparticle self- dispersion and stabilization to achieve a uniform self dispersion of nanoparticles in various bio-metals to deliver unprecedented biomedical properties. This talk will specifically discuss about various scientific and technological aspects on how nanotechnology can be applied to break metallurgical barriers, enabling unprecedented micro/nano-structure control and property tuning in bio-metals manufacturing. This approach of nanotechnology enabled bio-metals manufacturing paves a revolutionary pushing the performance of bio-metals to meet health challenges in today’s society.
Professor Xiaochun Li is the Raytheon Endowed Chair in Manufacturing Engineering in the Departments of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering & Materials Science and Engineering at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He currently serves as the Chief Technology Officer for the Western Regonal Smart Manufacturing Center, USA Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute. He received his Ph.D. at Stanford University in 2001. He is a holder of multiple best paper awards and patents, including more than 10 of those licensed by industry. Dr. Li received National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2002, Jiri Tlusty Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award from Society of Manufacturing Engineers in 2003, and 2008 Howard F. Taylor Award from American Foundry Society (AFS). Dr. Li was previously a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science Program at University of Wisconsin – Madison (UW – Madison) from 2001 to 2013 . He served as the Director of Nano-Engineered Materials Processing Center (NEMPC) at UW-Madison between 2009 and 2013. Dr. Li has been elected Fellows in American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the International Society for Nanomanufacturing. He was also recently elected as a member of EU Academy of Sciences.
