Jingzhe Pan received his B.S. degree in applied mechanics from Shenyang University of Technology in 1982, the M.S. degree in computational solid mechanics from Dalian University of Technology in 1985, and the Ph.D. degree in solid mechanics from Shanghai Jiao-Tong University in 1988. His Ph.D. work was on experimental and finite element studies of fatigue damage in fibber-reinforced composite laminates. In 1990, he was a Visiting Fellow at the Civil Engineering Department of Liverpool University, working on modeling impact damage of concrete structures. From 1991 to 1994, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Engineering Department of Cambridge University, working on modeling creep failure of engineering materials. From 1994 to 2006, he served as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, and then Reader at the University of Surrey. His research at Surrey was mainly focused on modeling sintering of advanced ceramics. In 2006, he joined the University of Leicester to take up a Chair in mechanics of materials. His current research interests include biomaterials for tissue engineering and orthopedic fixations, sintering science and technology, impact and penetration failure of materials and structures, and strength, creep, and fatigue analysis of engineering equipments and structures.
