Dr. Faxiang Qin is currently a research professor under '100 Youth Talents Programme' in Institute for Composites Science Innovation (InCSI) at Zhejiang University. He was also awarded 'National Youth Thousand Talents Programme'in Jan 2016. Before joining InCSI, he was a JSPS research fellow at National Institute for Materials Science, Japan. He was a post-doctoral researcher in Advanced Composite Centre for Innovation and Science at the University of Bristol and Lab-STICC at Université de Bretagne Occidentale. He received the Master of Science in nano-materials from the South China University of Technology in 2007 and Ph.D in multifunctional composites from the University of Bristol in 2010. He was a recipient of the Overseas Research Students Awards Scheme (ORSAS) and the University of Bristol Postgraduate Student Scholarship. He was nominated for the Exceptional Thesis Prize and selected as one of the two candidates at Bristol for UK Royal Academy Engineering Fellowship. He was also the awardee of Finistère Postdoctoral Fellowship in France and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) fellowship.

My research interests lie in the science and technology of composite materials. I have been working on fabrication and characterisation of multifunctional composites with specific electromagnetic properties and microwave properties for industrial applications with an emphasis on structural monitoring, energy storage and conversion, microwave absorption and tunable properties.His work has been documented over 60 international refereed journal papers published in prestigious journals in materials and physics including two authoritative reviews in Progress in Materials Science and Applied Physics Reviews.
