Xuanhe Zhao, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science
Xuanhe Zhao received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Harvard University in 2009, MAS in Materials Engineering from University of British Columbia in 2006, and BE in Electrical Engineering from Tianjin University in 2003. Upon finishing a postdoctoral training in Biomedical Engineering at Harvard, in 2010, Zhao joint the faculty of Duke University, and established a laboratory studying mechanics and materials.
Zhao is a winner of the AAM Founder's Prize from American Academy of Mechanics. He was selected as the final list for the Spring 2009 MRS Graduate Student Award. He received the Winston Chen Graduate Fellowship from Harvard University and John S Nadeau Memorial Scholarship from University of British Columbia.

- Research Interests: Soft Active Materials
Dr Zhao's research is to understand the fundamental mechanics and physics of materials and phenomena emerging on the interface between engineering and biological systems and to design new materials and structures capable of extraordinary functions. He is currently particularly interested in soft materials which are easily deformed by multiple thermodynamic forces such as mechanical stress, electric field, magnetic field, and chemical potential and their applications in various technologies such as energy storage, energy harvesting, biofouling, drug delivery, tissue engineering, robotics, microfluidics, and water treatment.
