Professor Lumin Wang, originally from Beijing, China, received his PhD in Materials Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1988 with a thesis topic on radiation effects in nuclear engineering materials. He worked at Argonne National Laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow and University of New Mexico as a research scientist before joining the faculty of the University of Michigan in 1997.  He is now a tenured professor in the Department of Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences with a joint appointment in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.  He also served as the director of the Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory (EMAL), a campus wide user facility for material characterization at the University of Michigan during 2005-2009.  Professor Wang has been appointed as an adjunct chair professor at the College of Energy of Xiamen University of China since 2010.

Professor Wang’s interest is in nuclear engineering materials, nuclear fuel cycles including nuclear waste management, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) characterization of materials at the nanoscale, as well as ion beam modification of materials. Professor Wang has published more than 300 SCI indexed research papers with a h-index value of 42. Professor Wang has delivered over 100 invited talks in national and international conferences or at research institutions worldwide.
