Personal profile


Doctor Zhuoran (Randy) Zeng is presently an assistant lecturer in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University. He received his B. Eng. with first-class honour (2011) and Ph.D. (2016). His research interests include design and development of magnesium wrought alloys, recrystallization and texture, and application of electron backscattered diffraction. His research interests also include high entropy alloys and high-temperature alloys, additive manufacturing of structural materials, materials degradation and protection, and application of advanced characterisation techniques (particularly in-situ techniques). He is now the reviewer of several journals including Metallurgical and Materials Transaction A, Materials Science and Engineering A, Scientific Reports, Journal of Alloys and Compounds, etc.
