Kenan Song, Ph.D., is currently an Assistant Professor @ The Polytechnic School (TPS) and Fulton Graduate Faculty in Department of Mechancial and Aerospace Engineering (MAE), and Department of Materials Sciecne and Engineering (MSE) @ School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, & Energy (SEMTE). Before joining ASU in 2017 Fall, Dr. Song was a Postdoc Associate at MIT, jointly affiliated with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE), and Department of Chemical Engineering (ChemE). Dr. Song obtained his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering (ME) from Northeastern University (Boston, MA) in 2014, and B.S. in Engineering Mechanics as well as minor in International Economic Law from Northeastern University (Shenyang, P.R.China) in 2010.

Dr. Song’s research interest includes the processing-structure-property relationships in advanced composite materials (AMCs). Specifically, Dr. Song’s research is focused on the advanced manufacturing, characterization, simulation, and application of polymer-based nanoparticle-filled composites, aiming for high performance in structural and functional utilizations. Nanoparticles of interest include one-dimensional nanotubes, two-dimensional nanochips, and zero-dimensional nanospheres.
