Dr. Hanqing Jiang is an Associate Professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Arizona State University. Dr. Jiang received Ph.D. from Tsinghua University in 2001 under the supervisor of Professor Keh-Chih Hwang (黄克智), majoring in Solid Mechanics, and then worked with Professor Yonggang Huang of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His current research interest is the multiphysics modeling and experiments for heterogeneous hard and soft materials, specifically on combined elastomeric materials with thin films for strain sensors, silicon thin films on soft substrates as anodes in lithium ion batteries, and integrated gels and electronics. He has published 5 book chapters and 78 peer-reviewed journal papers, including multi-disciplinary journals (Science, PNAS), materials journals (Advanced Materials), nano journals (Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Letters), physics journals (PRL, PRB, APL, JAP), and mechanics journals (JMPS, IJP, IJSS, JAM). Many of his papers are among the top cited papers in mechanics and/or mechanical engineering communities.
Dr. Hanqing Jiang has received many awards, including the National Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Award of China in 2003, and NSF CAREER award in 2009.
