We are a team of talented professionals with a wide range of skills and experience. We look forward to working with you.

Dr Wei Tan

Dr. Wei Tan is currently a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at Queen Mary University London. He received his Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering and Physics at Central South University in 2011, followed by his PhD in Aerospace Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast in 2016. He then worked a Research Associate at University of Cambridge from 2016 to 2020. His research interests lie in the mechanics of composite materials and nanomaterials for energy storage. His research features the impact damage prediction and crashworthiness design of carbon fibre composites, manufacturing and modelling of carbon nanotube (CNT) polymer composites for supercapacitors.
