Pu Zhang received his BS (2008) in Engineering Mechanics and MS (2011) in Solid Mechanics at Hunan University in China. He was awarded a PhD degree (2015) in Mechanical Engineering from University of Pittsburgh where he conducted research on biomimetic materials, lattice materials, and additive manufacturing. After obtaining his PhD, he was appointed as a postdoctoral research associate (2016-2017) at University of Manchester to explore tunable metamaterials. Zhang joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Binghamton University in Jan. 2018 where he directs the Mechanics & Architectured Materials Group. His current research interest falls into the area of material modelling and design for additive manufacturing.
