Prof Hanshan Dong

Prof Hanshan Dong

Professor of Surface Engineering | University of Birmingham

Hanshan Dong is Professor of Surface Engineering and Leader of Surface Engineering Research Group at the University of Birmingham.He is a leading surface engineering expert in developing novel surface engineering technologies (such as S-phase surface engineering, ceramic conversion, graphene-based coatings, active-screen plasma co-alloying and triple-glow plasma multi-functionalisation), surface engineering design and modelling, and characterisation of surface engineered materials (such as environmental nanoindentation, XTEM & interface bonding).Hanshan has published more than 300 papers in international journals (~200) and conferences together with 6 patents, 1 book and 5 book chapters. During the past 10 years, he has successfully been awarded for 20 research projects and received major grants from EC, EPSRC, TSB and the Royal Society. He won the Harvey Flower Titanium Prize 2004 awarded by IoM3 ‘in recognition of his contribution to the science and technology of surface engineering of titanium alloys’. He is active in international surface engineering activities including visiting professorships, plenary and invited lectures to major international conferences, organisation of national and international conferences and is on the editorial board of academic journals.
