Biography

Dr Longhui Zhang holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering (2018) from Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. He completed his direct BSc-MSc in Solid Mechanics at the South China University of Technology between 2009-2015.

Longhui’s interest is in dynamic mechanics of material, with emphasis on the high rate thermo-mechanical coupling and the dynamic failure mechanism.

Longhui is currently a post-doctoral research associate in University of Oxford. His work is mainly funded by aerospace manufacturers such as Rolls-Royce and TIMETAT et al. LH. Zhang is a member of the International Society of Impact Engineering and serves as a peer reviewer for Journal of Aerospace Engineering, Polymer Engineering & Science, International Journal of Crashworthiness, Journal of Materials Processing Technology et al.
