Xin Zhao

Forskare at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Fluid Dynamics

Mr. Xin Zhao, grew up in Guiyang, China, is a Ph.D. student at Applied Mechanics Department of Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden since 2012. Prior to his arrival to Sweden, he studied his B.Sc. degree at Beijing Institute of Technology in China until 2008. After that, Mr. Xin Zhao joined the master program ‘Automotive Engineering’ at Chalmers University of Technology where he received his M.Sc. degree in 2011. The study topic of his Ph.D. is aero engine intercooler conceptual design.
