Dr. Shuai Wei received his Ph.D. degree in materials science at the Saarland University in Germany before moving to the School of Molecular Sciences at the Arizona State University in the United States as a Feodor-Lynen Postdoctoral Research Fellow of Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation. He has recently moved to Germany as a research fellow at the RWTH Aachen University.
His research fields are materials science, applied physics and chemistry. More specifically, his work focuses on bulk metallic glasses and phase-change materials. He investigates the structure, thermodynamics and kinetics of various amorphous materials and advances a better understanding of relationship between these properties and their connections to atomic-scale structures.
