X Ke's Lab

Led by Dr Xinyuan Ke @University of Bath, UK

"I am leading an interdisciplinary materials research lab based at the University of Bath, UK.

My teams work on developing green fabrication technologies of alternative high-performance functional building materials from low-impact resources (natural minerals, waste materials). Our mission is to deliver a greener and cleaner construction industry and

energy-efficient built environment."

Research Areas

Ultra-low-carbon Cement

Cement and concrete materials are indispensable for modern construction; however, they also bear high embodied carbon. Our research aims to deliver sustainable materials designs and innovative waste valorisation solutions for the development of future ultra-low-carbon cements.

Advanced Characterisation for Durable Infrastructure Materials

From atoms to micro- and meso-scale, my team develops fundamental understandings of the reaction mechanisms of low-carbon cements and their durability performances, with the support of advanced characterisation techniques

(lab-based and synchrotron beamlines).

AI-powered Performance-based Design of Sustainable Concrete

Beyond lab-based synthesis, characterisation, and testing. Our novel machine-learning algorithm enables the performance prediction, design, and durability assessment of existing and future sustainable concretes.
