1ST KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Prof. Jun Ding
National University of Singapore, Singapore
Dr Jun DING obtained his Diplom Physics from University of Wuppertal in 1986, and PhD degree from Ruhr University Bochum, Germany in 1990. He has been working on magnetic and nanostructured materials for more than 25 years. He is currently working as Professor at Department of Materials Science & Engineering, National University of Singapore. He has published over 350 journal papers with a total citation > 9000 and H-Index = 52.
Research Interests: Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing): Recently, Prof Ding Jun's research has been concentrated on additive manufacturing. His research has been focused on the development of starting mateirals for fabrication of multi-functioanal devices/structures of metal, ceramics, polymer and composite.
Nanomagnetics/spintronics and their applications: Prof Ding Jun has been working in the area of nanomagnetics and spintronics for many years. Recently, he has paid a particular attention on these materials and devices in different applications, including spintronic structures in information storage, nanoparticles in biomedical and environmental applications, magnetic sensors, magnetic energy harvesters and metamaterials. 3D printing will be used in the device fabrication.
