About

google scholarYufeng Zheng is a research associate in the Center for the Accelerated Maturation of Materials at The Ohio State University. He obtained his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University in 2013. Yufeng’s research is focused on the study of non-conventional phase transformation mechanisms involving nano-scale structural and compositional instabilities in titanium alloys utilizing advanced electron microscopy and computational simulation. Yufeng implemented systematic investigations on the refinement of intragranular alpha microstructure in beta titanium alloys and proposed two novel phase transformation pathways in titanium alloys. He has also characterized and interpreted two other types of previously unidentified nano-scale metastable phases in titanium alloys, showing promising opportunities to improve the overall performance of titanium alloys by manipulating microstructural evolution. Yufeng has published 26 papers, two of which were recognized as highly cited paper by Web of Science, and he has presented his work over 20 times at international conferences. He was named among five finalists for the Aaronson Award for outstanding young researcher at the 2015 International Conference on Solid-Solid Phase Transformation in Inorganic Materials. Yufeng is a member of the TMS phase transformation committee and TMS titanium committee. He has organized and chaired symposiums in the field of phase transformation at various international conferences.
