Expertise: My research concerns the mechanical response of composite materials by experimental, theoretical and computational endeavours. I aim at developing high fidelity models that can predict material performance and provide fundamental insight in a wide range of multidisciplinary challenges, from carbon fibre composites to carbon nanotube composites, from mechanical to electrochemical behaviour, and from macroscale to nanoscale.

Brief Biography

Dr. Wei Tan is currently a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at Queen Mary University London. He received his Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering and Physics at Central South University , followed by his PhD in Aerospace Engineering at Queen's University Belfast . He then worked as a Research Associate at University of Cambridge. His research interests lie in the mechanics of composite materials and nanomaterials for energy storage. His research features the impact damage prediction and crashworthiness design of carbon fibre composites, manufacturing and modelling of carbon nanotube (CNT) polymer composites for supercapacitors.
