Yu Lung Chiu
University of Birmingham
Yu Lung Chiu did his PhD project on studying the microstructure and mechanical properties of Ni3Al based alloys at the University of Hong Kong. Then he worked as a postdoctoral fellow studying the strength and deformation mechanism of TiAl alloys. After lecturing at the University of Auckland for about three years, he started his current appointment at the University of Birmingham in early 2008.
Yu Lung Chiu is interested in understanding the plasticity of solid materials by studying crystal defects and microstructure evolution mainly using electron microscopes. Currently he is working on magnesium alloys, titanium aluminides, and nanostructured model materials including copper.
