Prof. Jian LU is Chair Professor of Mechanical Engineering. He obtained the Dip. Ing., Master (DEA) degree and Doctoral degree from University of Technology of Compiegne in 1984 and 1986 respectively. From 1986 to 1994, he was appointed as Senior Research Engineer at the CETIM (French Technical Centre for Mechanical Industry). In 1994, he was appointed as Professor; Head of Department of Mechanical Systems Engineering and Director of Mechanical Systems and Concurrent Engineering Laboratory jointly supported by the French Ministry of Education and CNRS at the University of Technology of Troyes, France. From 2005 to 2010, he was Chair Professor and Head of Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. From 2010 to 2013, he was the Dean of College of Science and Engineering at CityU. From 2013 to Nov. 2020, he served as the Vice-President (Research & Technology) and Dean of Graduate Studies of CityU.

Professor LU’s primary research interest is advanced materials and its integration in mechanical and biomedical systems using the combination of experimental mechanics and mechanical simulation. He has also branched out into several other areas of interest including surface engineering, biomechanics, residual stresses, and mechanics of nanomaterials. He has published more than 450 SCI journal papers including papers in Nature (cover story), Science, Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Materials Today, Advanced Materials, PRL, Acta Materialia, and Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids. He received the French Knight of the National Order of Merit and French Knight of the National Order of Légion d’Honneur in 2006 & 2017 respectively. Both awards were nominated by the President of the Republic of France and awarded by the French Government. He was elected as the 1st Chinese-born Academician of the National Academy of Technologies of France among 300 Fellows in 2011.
