Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Xinyuan Ke joined The University of Bath since September 2018 as a Prize Fellow, specialised in material characterisation, cement chemistry, waste utilisation and management. She is working on developing sustainable construction materials with high performance. Her research focuses on both microstructure analysis and macro-scale performance prediction for alternative cementitious materials, including geopolymer, alkali-activated cement, calcined clays, and calcium aluminate-phosphate cement.

The full list of her current publiucation can be found via:


Her current research interests include:

  • To understand the fundamental physical chemistry of sustainable cement using advanced materials characterisation (e.g. XRD, Raman, XRF, Solid State NMR), and thermodynamic modelling
  • Developing of smart chemical additive using functional nanomaterial for designing sustainable concrete
  • Advanced data science for automation of the concrete design and performance prediction.
  • Durability assessment of sustainable concrete (e.g. chloride induced corrosion, carbonation, acid attack)
  • Nuclear waste encapsulation and solidification using inorganic binders.
  • Life cycle assessment
