Jinhua (Jim) Song

Research Professor School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Professor Jinhua (Jim) Song gained his BEng(1982) and MSc (1985) in China and PhD (1990) in Newcatle University , UK. He jioned Brunel University London and worked there for 28 years as RA (1990-97) , Lecturer (1997-2000), Senior Lecturer (20000-2004) and then Professor and Director of Materials Research (2004-2018) in Wolfson Centre for Materials Processing. His research interests focuse on materials processing ranging from metals (precision forming of gas turbine blades), engineering ceramics (compaction & green machining, injection moulding, ink-jet printing etc.) , computer modelling of processes (compaction of powders, debinding from injection moulded components, fluculation of colloids etc) to bio-based materials ( biopolymers, natrual fibres & composites, biofoams and lignocellulosic biomasses for biofeuls, materials and fine chamical applications). He led some 20 major UK/EU projects with over 10 million pounds of research grants and pruduced over 100 publications. He served EPSRC College since 2003, technical advisor/asseser for DEFRA programs and asseser of national reasech programs for Canada and Ireland. He Joined SUSTech in 2018 leading research in bio-based materials and industrial production.

The core mission of universities is to "discover knowledge, disseminate knowledge and serve the society". This mission is fulfilled through a set of tasks: to constantly provide new ideas, new knowledge, new technologies and new talents; to support new industries; to uphold the sustainable growth of the economical society and drive human progress through innovation. Southern University of Science and Technology (the "SUSTech") keeps attaching importance to the university-industry collaboration that contributes to the construction of world-class university.
To highlight the "Research, Innovation and Entrepreneurship" concepts, SUSTech officially founded the School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (the “IE School”) in August 2016, to meet new requirements for technology innovation and talent cultivation. IE School is committed to the industrial research, the cultivation of innovative talents and entrepreneurs, as well as the incubation of high-tech companies.
IE School has built an international and high-standard faculty team, composed of approximately 30 research professors, over 40 academic professors and nearly 200 industrial mentors, to achieve the mission of cultivating innovative talents.

 

Welcome post-doctoral researchers, PhD students, master students and SUSTech undergraduate students to join our team.
