 Dr. Wei Yu, 2010


Wei Yu is a Professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), P.R. China. He completed his PhD on morphology evolution of immiscible polymer blends at SJTU, P.R. China, in 2000. For a year (2001-2002) he was in Canada at Laval University where he worked as a Post-Doc with Prof. Mosto Bousmina. Upon his return to China, Prof. Yu joined the Faculty at SJTU, where he rose through the ranks to become Professor in 2009.

Prof. Yu’s research work deals with theoretical and experimental rheology of various polymeric materials. He is well known for the development of a series of constitutive models for polymer blends covering Newtonian components and viscoelastic components. He is also recognized for his works in reactive polymer processing especially on the rheokinetics of reactions between polymer chains and the efforts to determine the structure of polymer chain with long chain branching both qualitatively and quantitatively.

Prof. Yu has delivered invited/keynote lectures at various international conferences and has been a frequent invited lecturer at various universities and industrial companies in P. R. China. He is the author of about 200 scientific publications including 90 journal papers, co-editor of one book and author of 3 book chapters.
