About

Professor Lin's research expertise is in materials modelling, FEM and metal forming simulations. He has developed a range of physically based material models to simulate microstructure evolution and formability of materials in various metal forming processes for many engineering materials, including aluminium, nickel-based superalloys, titanium, etc.

He has developed Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) theories and software packages to determine unified constitutive equations from experimental data.

Biography

Prior to Birmingham

He worked at the University of Sheffield and UMIST for 4 years as a post-doctoral research associate

Upon leaving the University of Birmingham he returned to Imperial College to take up his current position as Head of Mechanics of Materials Division , Department of Mechanical Engineering.
