Wangyu Hu received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Hunan University in 1985 and 1989, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree in materials science from the Institute of Metal Research, Academia Sinica, 1996. As a Postdoctoral Fellow, he served at the Institute of Powder Metallurgy, Central South University, from 1996 to 1999. In 1999, he became a Professor at the Department of Applied Physics in Hunan University, China, and served as an Academic Visitor at The University of Liverpool, UK, for 3 months. From 2001 to 2003, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan. As a Visiting Professor, he worked at Meiji University, Japan, in 2004. His research experience covers a range of topics in computational material physics, particularly in multiscale computer simulations and the analytic embedded atom method (EAM), which include alloy design, radiation damage, lattice defects, nanostructured metals and alloys, as well as surface and interface. Also, combining EAM with the first principles, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, and lattice dynamics, Hu has many-year experience in the development of interatomic potentials and multiscale simulation methods to deal with microstructure and mechanical properties evolution in materials: a systematic atomistic simulation theory and application method is being constructed. In 2008, as a Cochair, he served on organizing technical committees of the 9th International Conference on Computer Simulation of Radiation Effects in Solids. He has more than 240 refereed publications and presented over 40 presentations at technical conferences, invited seminars, and lectures. The H index of his publications is 20(ref="http://www.researcherid.com/Workspace.action">http://www.researcherid.com/Workspace.action, Researcher ID: B-5762-2009).
