New Group Members

We would like to introduce two of our new PhD candidates: Yuanyuan Liu and Zhuolun Yao

Yuanyuan Liu

Yuanyuan Liu graduated with a BEng in Ceramic Composite Materials from Zhengzhou University, China in 2010.  In 2012, she got her Master degree in Materials Physics and Chemistry from Harbin Institute of Technology, China. Then she commenced a CSC scholarship to pursue a PhD on “Inkjet printing of ceramics” under the supervision of Professor Derby. Her research now is mainly focus on the “coffee stain” and defects in 3D printed ceramics.


Zhuolun Yao

Zhuolun Yao started a four year MEng program in Biomedical Materials and Tissue Engineering with the University of Manchester in 2008. During this time he successfully completed two research projects on optimising inkjet printing for tissue engineering under the supervision of Professor Brian Derby and Dr Rachel Saunders. He obtained his MEng (Hons) in 2012 and has since been awarded the opportunity to pursue further research with the group through a PDS funded PhD Studentship. His current research focus is on the suitability of different hydrogel scaffolds for tissue engineering and their printing characteristics. During his time with the university, Zhuolun was heavily involved with Student As Partners, taking on various the roles, including PASS Leader, Peer Mentor, Student Consultant, Student Coordinator, as well as representing the University of Manchester in the National PASS Leader Conference in 2011.
