Dr. Zhou is a professor in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He received both his B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees from Tsinghua University, China and his Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University. His research interests include mechanics of materials, modeling and simulation, and additive manufacturing. He conducted research as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University, USA for three years. He was a visiting scholar in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, USA for two months.

Dr. Zhou has founded the journal Smart Manufacturing and serves as its Editor-in-Chief. He has also co-founded Journal of Micromechanics and Molecular Physics and serves as its Co-Editor-in-Chief. In addition, he serves as an associate editor/editorial board member of several other international journals including Mechanics Research Communications, Virtual and Physical Prototyping, Friction, International Journal of Fatigue, Acta Mechanica, Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures, and International Journal of Applied Mechanics.
