Postdoctoral Scholars

Bu Wang
Postdoctoral Scientist

wangbu@ucla.edu
List of publications

Education:
2000-2004: B.S. in Electrical Engineering, Tianjin University, China
2004-2007: M.S. in Electrical Engineering, Tianjin University, China
2007-2012: Ph.D. in Ceramic Engineering, Alfred University

Research interest:
My research focuses on the complex atomic structures of crystalline and amorphous inorganic materials. By utilizing various simulation techniques, my research strives to understand how the material properties can be predicted and engineered at the atomic level. The current project includes radiation resistance in silicates, mechanical properties and nano-ductility of oxide glasses, and amorphization of functional oxides.

N M Anoop Krishnan
Postdoctoral Scientist

List of publications

Education:
2005-2009: B.Tech in Civil Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Calicut, India
2009-2014: Ph.D. in Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India

Research interest:
I am interested in an interdisciplinary research integrating ideas from physics, material sciences, and engineering with a focus on the mechanics of amorphous materials. My research involves exploring the response of materials at the atomic scale to design smart materials at the macroscale, utilizing various simulation techniques. A few current projects include irradiation response of minerals, design of fracture resistant glasses, and modeling fatigue fracture and creep in concrete.

List of publications

Research interest:
My research focuses on “green” building materials, designed by computational methods (DFT, molecular dynamics). Briefly, the new generation of building materials (cement clinkers) are re-designed by atomic doping substitutions in order to (1) reduce sintering temperature/energy consumption, (2) enhance reactivity/product-strength with equivalent material consumption, and (3) reduce heat capacity.
