Research summary

Materials with multiple length-scale structures are a fascinating yet critical class of material that have characteristic dimensions spanning from nano- to macro-scales. These materials have enormous potential for future use as they can display unique properties such as combinations of strength and toughness at ambient to elevated temperatures. Mechanistic understanding of the failure mechanisms in these materials at operating temperature is vital to assure the integrity of these components, from the safe operation of nuclear reactors to the extended protection of turbine blades in aero jet engines and land-based gas turbines.

My current research focuses on the microstructural characterisation and mechanical testing (strength ...

Dr. Dong Liu joined Bristol on 01 July 2018 as a Lecturer in Physics.

She obtained her Ph.D. at the University of Bristol (UK) in 2012 on the measurement of residual stresses and mechanical properties in environmental and thermal barrier coatings. She then worked as a postdoctoral researcher on the deformation and fracture of quasi-brittle materials such as cement, gypsum plaster composites and nuclear graphite.

In 2015, Dr. Liu moved to the University of Oxford as a Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Brunel Research Fellow. In 2016, she was awarded a EPSRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Mansfield College ...
