Dr. Jie Yang

Dr. Jie Yang
RMIT University, Australia
Plenary Speaker

Dr. Yang is a full professor in the School of Engineering, RMIT University, Australia. He obtained PhD degree in solid mechanics at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, in 2002 and was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Queensland, Australia before moving to City University of Hong Kong as a Research Fellow in late 2004 then a Lecturer in 2005. He joined RMIT University, Australia in late 2007 as a Lecturer where he was promoted to Professor in 2016. His main research interests include advanced composite structures, graphene enabled mechanical metamaterials, nanocomposites, advanced composite structures, structural stability and dynamics, smart structures and control, and nano/micro-mechanics. He is an author of over 350 papers including 260 journal papers which have so far attracted over 18300 Google Scholar citations with h-index 78. He is the Highly Cited Researcher (Cross Field) in 2019, 2020, 2021 by Clarivate Analytics and is named by Australian Research Magazine as Global Field Leader in Mechanical Engineering in 2020, Australia’s Research Field Leader in Mechanical Engineering in 2019, 2020, 2021, and Australia’s Research Field Leader in Structural Engineering in 2021. Prof Yang is the Editor-in-Chief of Engineering Structures (JCR Q1), Associate Editor of Mechanics Based Design of Structures and Machines, and the editorial board member of Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures, Thin-Walled Structures, International Journal of Structural Stability and Dynamics, Scientific Reports, Materials, and Shock and Vibration, etc.

Topic of Keynote:

Dr. Saji George

Dr. Saji George
McGill University, Canada
Keynote Speaker

Dr Saji George is an Associate Professor in the Department of Food Science and Agricultural Chemistry at McGill University and Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Nanotechnology for Food and Agriculture. Previously, Dr George was spearheading Centre for Sustainable Nanotechnology at Nanyang Polytechnic, Singapore from where he completed several research projects addressing the health risks of nanomaterials and environmental contaminants. His research is aimed at understanding the relationship between nanomaterial properties and their hazardous and beneficial biological outcomes with the ultimate goal of developing sustainable nanotechnology applications for current and future challenges in food safety and security. He has authored 74 peer reviewed articles, five patents and >45 invited talks. He has been serving as reviewer and editorial board member for many leading journals in the field of nanotechnology (nano-bio interactions). His excellences in teaching and research have been recognized by Ministry of Education, Singapore through the best mentor award and PS21 ExCEL Gold/Silver Awards in 2015 and 2016 and Canada Research Chair (Tier 2).
