· Research Group

· Name of Research Group:Sustainable energy a

Description of Research Group:Our lab is affiliated with the State Key Laboratory of Materials Processing and Die & Mould Technology at HUST. Our research is oriented toward the critical needs of advanced materials and clean energy for a better future. We are particularly focused on using the unique high-temperature synthesis and intelligent data-driven manufacturing platform for innovations in (1) energy materials discovery, (2) multielement and high entropy alloys, (3) battery and catalysis, and (4) rapid manufacturing and 3D printing.

Currently, we have multiple positions for students and post-docs, immediately available. Please contact us if you are interested at yaoyg@hust.edu.cn.
