"The greatness is achieved through diligence, but retarded by laziness. The deed is accomplished through thinking , but destroyed by following."-- Han Yu, An Explication of Progress in Learning

Research profile

XiaoCheng Mi is an assistant professor at the Power and Flow group in the Mechanical Engineering Department of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research efforts are focused on developing breakthrough technologies of renewable energy systems and tackling the related safety issues. The key areas of XiaoCheng's interests include metal combustion, pressure-gain combustion, and detonation in gaseous, heterogeneous, and condensed-phase energetic materials.

Academic background

XiaoCheng Mi received his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering at McGill University (Canada) in May 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Andrew J. Higgins. His doctoral dissertation is on "Detonation in spatially inhomogeneous media". From Aug. 2018 to Feb. 2020, he was supported by the Canadian NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship to pursue a postdoctoral study on detonation of multiphase energetic materials at the Centre for Scientific Computing (CSC), Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge (UK), directed by Dr. Nikolaos Nikiforakis. Prior to his appointment at TU/e, XiaoCheng had his second postdoctoral research since Mar. 2020  with a focus on metal combustion at the Alternative Fuel Laboratory (AFL), McGill University, directed by Prof. Jeffrey M. Bergthorson. He is a member of the Combustion Institute (Int. and Canadian Section) and the American Physical Society (APS). Since 2013, he has published 24 peer-reviewed journal publications (including 9 first-authored articles) in Combustion and Flame, Proceedings of the Combustion Institute, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, etc. He received the John H.S. Lee Young Investigator Award at the 27th International Colloquium for Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems (ICDERS) in 2019. From 2020 to 2021, XiaoCheng founded and co-organized the first two seasons of the Young Researchers’ Forum on Detonation.
