Prof. Yujin Wang is a full professor of materials science, Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT). He was born in April 1974 in Heihe, Heilongjiang Province, China. He received his BS (1996), MS (1998) and PhD (2002) in materials science from HIT, China. He joined the faculty of Materials Science and Engineering at HIT in 2002. He was a visiting scholar at Department of Aerospace Engineering, University of Bristol, UK in 2008 for four months. In 2013, he was awarded for the program of New Century Excellent Talents in University (NCET) from the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. In 2022, he was awarded for the program of National High-level Talent from the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. In 2015, he was appointed as the head of Dept. Materials Science (HIT).
Professor Wang’s research interests focus on Ultra-high temperature materials (UHTMs), such as refractory metals based composites, Ultra-high temperature carbide ceramics and high-entropy ceramics, etc. He presided over more than 30 national scientific research projects. Some achievements have been made in high-temperature deformation behavior and toughening mechanism of refractory metal matrix composites, low-temperature densification and toughening of ultra-high temperature ceramics, synthesis of ultrafine carbide powder, and industrialization of ceramic tools. He has won 4 items in total for the first, second and third prizes of provincial and ministerial science and technology awards, 19 authorized national invention patents, published more than 200 academic papers. He has served as one of Committee Members of the Chinese Heat Treatment Society (CHTS) and the Chinese Engineering Ceramics Society (CECS); and one of the Youth Committee Members of the Chinese Materials Research Society (C-MRS).
