Prof. Di Yun
Xi'an Jiaotong University, China
Outstanding scholar in the ‘Youth Talent Plan’
Director of ‘Key R&D Project Issues’ for the Ministry of Science and Technology
Dr. Di Yun is a professor in the Department of Nuclear Science and Technology of Xi'an Jiaotong University. He is an outstanding scholar in the ‘Youth Talent Plan’ and served as the director of ‘Key R&D Project Issues’ for the Ministry of Science and Technology. Professor Yun received his PhD in Nuclear Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010. He worked at Argonne National Laboratory as a nuclear engineer in the Nuclear Engineering Division from 2010 to 2015. He joined Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2015.
Professor Yun focuses on developing advanced nuclear fuel materials. On the theoretical front, he explored a novel approach, multi-atom nucleation, to describe gas bubble nucleation process in metallic nuclear fuel materials; he also investigated in fundamental aspects of nuclear fuel performance modeling and applied multi-scale simulation methods to address fuel performance issues. On the experimental front, he is developing nitride coatings for advanced nuclear fuel systems for light water reactors and has received technological awards in this area; he is currently pushing for development of such materials into real engineering application scenarios.
