Ph.D (Nanyang Technological University)

BS (University of Science and Technology of China)

Research Field
AI application in Materials science

Dr Zhu Xi obtained his bachelor degree of physics in the Special Class for the Gifted Young (SCGY) and Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Science at the Microscale,  University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2006, and Ph.D. in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, 2011. He used to work as a research fellow in school of materials science and engineering in NTU. His research interests focus on the application of condensed mater physics theory in interdisciplinary research. His current research focus on the AI application in materials science and new energy engineering, he leads the development of the on-demand materials synthesis operation scheme “MAOS” based on the intelligent robotics, promoting the new advance of materials science in AI era.
