Dr. Yijie Jiang joined the Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering, now the Department of Mechanical Engineering, as an assistant professor at the University of North Texas.
Jiang’s research focuses on combining design, fabrication and characterization at multiscale to achieve extraordinary mechanical properties and novel functionality. As the principal investigator of the Multiscale Fabrication and Characterization (MFC) lab, he is interested in advanced manufacturing of architected materials, incorporating micro/nano-materials in 3D printing, material and structural designs, and innovative fabrication and mechanical testing at different length scales.

Jiang has published 28 peer-reviewed articles, received more than 400 citations and has an h-index of 13. His works have been published in high impact journals, including Nature Communications, Science, and ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. Jiang also serves as peer reviewer for multiple journals, such as Science Advances, Extreme Mechanics Letters, Chemical Engineering Journal, and International Journal of Solids and Structures.

Jiang received his master’s and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering and applied mechanics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013 and 2017, respectively. He received his bachelor degree in theoretical and applied mechanics in 2011 from Fudan University in China. Prior to joining UNT in fall 2019, Jiang worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Architected Materials Lab at the University of Pennsylvania.
