Biography

Dr. Lizhi Xu received his B.S. degree in Applied Physics from Beihang University, and his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He will be joining the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hong Kong as an assistant professor in October 2018.

Dr. Xu’s research involves bio-inspired soft materials and devices. The research imparts biomimetic concepts to the engineering of nanocomposite materials that replicate the structures and functions of soft tissues. Multiscale fabrication techniques are involved to generate reconfigurable 3D structures, allowing for integration of advanced electronic components and biomaterials into organ-compliant forms. As exemplified by artificial cartilage, kirigami optics, and cardiac electronic membranes, the research efforts span across a continuous spectrum of materials science and device engineering. The integrative approaches seek to enable fully functional systems for implantable biomedical tools, tissue engineering platforms, wearable electronics, energy and environmental technologies, and many other applications.
