Yuanxin Zhou has been a leading researcher in composite fabrication, characterization, and modeling for 20 years. He combined Monte Carlo method and micromechanics approach to simulate randomly failure process of composites. He developed experimental methods to evaluate fatigue strength distribution of fiber by using fiber bundles test. His research in nanocomposite has made significant contributions to understand processing-structure-property relationship of multifunctional composite. Zhou has published more than 80 refereed journal papers and worked as PI and Co-PI of total $2.9 million research programs for different government agents and industries. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2000 from the University of Science and Technology of China. Currently, he is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering.
