Dr Dong Qiu's primary research focus is in the field of materials and manufacturing engineering.
Interphase crystallography in metals and alloys; grain refinement during solidification.
Dong was an Australian Research Fellow from the Australian Research Council, researching in-depth understanding of crystallography in solid-solid phase transformations.
Dong has received significant funding for research into light metals and to establish infrastructure and facilities to support research into in-situ elevated temperature nano-indentation, vacuum induction furnace for casting titanium alloys and carbon-free high temperature vacuum sintering.
Dong was awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Senior Research Fellowship in 2014 and is aligned with the School of Engineering.
