Research Associate

Dr.Wen Qin

Dr. Wen Qin joined Professor Jerzy A. Szpunar's group at McGill University in 2005. From 2006 to 2008, he worked in Osaka University as JSPS fellow. After finishing his work in Japan, he came back to McGill University. In 2010, he followed Professor Jerzy A. Szpunar moved to University of Saskatchewan. He has published 70 academic papers. At present he is a researcher. His research interests include nuclear structural materials, pipeline steels, high energy irradiation-induced structure modification, phase transition, and magnetic materials, etc.
