Postdoctoral Research Associate

Biography

Dr. Guohua Zhao is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Rolls-Royce UTC for Solid Mechanics, Oxford. He also holds a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship with Kyoto University, Japan. 

Zhao joined the Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering Group, Department of Engineering Science, Oxford in February 2020. He is engaged in a research project funded by Rolls-Royce plc, which aims to investigate the mechanical characteristics of lightweight aerospace alloys under extreme deformation conditions. Before joining Oxford, Zhao worked as a PDRA at Lancaster University for the EPSRC DARE (Designing Alloys for Resource Efficiency) project, where he was responsible to lead high value research work in designing and manufacturing damage-tolerant materials. Zhao obtained his PhD in 2017 from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.
