Junyi Zhou DPhil MEng

Postdoctoral Research Assistant


Dr Junyi Zhou completed MEng (2015) and PhD (2019) in the Department of Aeronautics, Imperial college London, where he worked primarily on developing an appratus for the measurement of mechanical properties of high performance engineering materials under various loading conditions (low/high strain rates, temperature controlled)

He joined Impact Engineering as a Postdoctoral researcher in Dec 2019.
