Hanshan Dong received his PhD degree in Surface Engineering in 1997 and became a full professor in 2010 at the University of Birmingham, Birmingham UK. He is Professor of Surface Engineering and Leader of Surface Engineering Research Group at the University of Birmingham. He is the Co-Director of EPSRC Doctor Training Centre in Metal Processing (IMPaCT) and a Fellow of IoM3. He is a leading surface engineering expert in developing novel surface engineering technologies for multi-functional surfaces and in characterisation of surface engineered materials. He won the Harvey Flower Titanium Prize awarded by IoM3 in recognition of his contribution to the science and technology of surface engineering of titanium alloys. He is active in international surface engineering activities including visiting professorships, plenary and invited lectures to major international conferences, organisation of national and international conferences. He is the Deputy Editor of ‘‘Chinese Surface Engineering'', Associate Editor, “International Journal of Surface Engineering and Interdisciplinary Materials Science” and on the editorial board of many other academic journals. In addition to six patents, about 300 papers have been published (including 200 journal papers).
He is a leading surface engineering expert in developing novel surface engineering technologies (including S-phase surface engineering of corrosion resistant alloys, ceramic conversion of Ti- and Zr-based alloys, plasma multi-functionalisation of carbon-based nano-materials, combined surface alloying and patterning for high-efficacy antibacterial surfaces, and low-friction & anti-adhesion coatings); in surface designing and modelling; and in characterising surface engineered materials using environmental nanoindentation, FIB/SEM & XTEM.
