EMAL Staff - General Information

The routine management of the Central Campus EMAL is carried out by Dr. Gordon Moore and Dr. Zhongrui (Jerry) Li, who are both full-time employees of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. Gordon is responsible for the overall management of the facility and training on the SEM and the Electron Microprobes. Jerry handles the Auger and the XRD and XTG systems.

North Campus EMAL is managed by Dr. John Mansfield who is an Associate Research Scientist in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MS&E). John Mansfield has nearly 30 years experience in the field of electron microscopy and related microanalysis. Dr. Mansfield earned his Ph.D. at the University of Bristol in the UK in 1983 under the supervision of Professor John Steeds. His post-doctoral studies took him to Argonne National Laboratory (working for Dr. Nestor Zaluzec) and The Microelectronics Center of North Carolina. John Mansfield has been managing the North Campus EMAL for 21 years.

Dr. Mansfield is assisted by two professional staff, Dr. Kai Sun and Dr. Haiping Sun. Dr. Kai Sun, an Assistant Research Scientist. Kai has more than 14 years experience in electron microscopy. He earned his Ph.D. in Materials Engineering in 1998 at the Dalian University of Technology in Dalian, China under the supervision of Professor K.H. Kuo (Beijing Laboratory of Electron Microscopy, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences). Kai joined EMAL in 2003 after working as a postdoctoral research fellow with Dr. L.M. Wang in the Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan, with Professor N.D. Browning in the Chemical Engineering and Materials Sciences Department at the University of California - Davis, with Professor X.D. Zou in the Structural Chemistry at the Stockholm University, Sweden. Dr. Haiping Sun joined EMAL in 2005, after his Ph.D. study in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan with Professor Xiaoqing Pan. Before coming to UM, Haiping was a research staff in Beijing Laboratory of Electron Microscopy, Institute of Phyics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He earned his M.S. in Condensed Matter Physics in 1997 at Jilin University in Changchun, China, and B.E. in Photoelectric Technology at Heilongjiang University in Harbin, China. Dr. Haiping Sun has more than 10 years experience in electron microscopy.

Ying Qi has a 20% appointment in EMAL as an Electronics Engineer (with the remainder of her time spent in MS&E).
