H. Jerry Qi

Georgia Institute of Technology
Dr. H. Jerry Qi is Professor and the Woodruff Faculty Fellow in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech. He received his bachelor degree and graduate degrees from Tsinghua University and a Doctor of Science degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). After one-year postdoc at MIT, he joined University of Colorado Boulder as an assistant professor in 2004. He joined Georgia Tech in 2014 as an associate professor and was promoted to a full professor in 2016. Prof. Qi’s research is in the broad field of nonlinear mechanics of polymeric materials and focuses on developing fundamental understanding of multi-field properties of soft active materials through experimentation and constitutive modeling then applying these understandings to application designs. He and his collaborators have been working on a range of soft active materials, including shape memory polymers, shape memory elastomeric composites, light activated polymers, covalent adaptable network polymers, for their interesting behaviors such as shape memory, light actuation, surface patterning, surface welding, healing, and reprocessing. In recent years, he has been working on integrating active materials with 3D printing. He and his collaborators pioneered the 4D printing concept. Prof. Qi is a recipient of NSF CAREER award (2007). In 2015, he was elected to an ASME Fellow.
