Invited talk
Flash sintering of ceramics for nuclear applications
Dr. Ji Zou works in University of Birmingham, UK. He is an expert on the processing and microstructure characterization of nonoxide ceramics for harsh environment, especially for diborides. Dr Zou received B.S. from Tianjin University and Ph.D. from Shanghai institute of ceramic, Chinese academy of Science in 2011. Since then, he has worked in several groups on structural ceramics in Belgium, Sweden and UK. Ji has published more than 40 peer-reviewed papers, and most of them have been published on Acta Mater, JACerS, JECerS, Scripta Materialia and Chemical Engineering Journal. His current interest includes (1) additive manufacturing of advanced materials, and (2) the interface of functional ceramics and ceramic matrix composite.

Some young Chinese Scholars are also invited to CICC-10 (see list)
