Xinghang Zhang

Professor of Materials Engineering

Dr. Zhang received his BS (1995) from Jilin University, China and MS (1998) from the Institute of Metal Research, China both in Materials Science & Engineering. He received his PhD in 2001 from North Carolina State and was a director-funded post-doc fellow at Los Alamos National Lab until joining Texas A & M University in 2005.

Prior to coming to Purdue Dr. Zhang was an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A & M University.

Dr. Zhang's research interests are in nanostructured metallic systems (thin films and bulk); radiation damage in nanostructured metallic materials; nanotwinned metals, and hydrogen storage in nanostructured metals. He couples materials processing with characterization and nanomechanical testing on a wide range of nanostructured metals in both ambient and harsh environments.
