Faculty of Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)



Jianying He is professor in Nanomechanics at Department of Structural Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). She received her BSc and MSc degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA) in 2000 and Beijing University of Science and Technology (USTB) in 2003, and PhD degree in Nanomechanics from NTNU in 2009 with the Best PhD Award in Applied Research. She had work as assistant professor at USTB (2003-2006), postdoctoral research fellow at NTNU (2009-2011), and associate professor at NTNU (2011-2017).

Her research focuses on nanomechanics and interface mechanics of energy and functional materials. She is leading the research activities on nanomechanical characteristics of materials and structures, functional surfaces and coatings for low adhesion applications, and multiphysical phenomena. Experimentally, she has built up high competence in surface design and modification, nanomechanical characterization and multiphysical measurement. In parallel, she has accumulated rich knowledge and experience of numerical simulation spanning from quantum level to continuum scale. Her research has significantly contributed to the success of the Norwegian industry to commercialize their products in the international electronics markets.

She is honored as one of the outstanding academic fellows at NTNU. She also serves as EXCO member of Nordic Association of Computational Mechanics, senior member of IEEE, EXCO member of IEEE Nanotechnology Nordic Chapter, editorial board member of Nano Express.

She has (co-)supervised more than 30 PhD students in the field of nanomechanics and interface mechanics, and published more than 190 papers in peer-reviewed journals.
