Zezhou Wen


I hold a Bachelor's degree (2016) and a Master's degree (2019) in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Science and Technology Beijing. Mainly focused on high temperature and high pressure (HTHP) corrosion and mainly participated in the project for material selection for downhole environments based on heavy oil thermal recovery environments from June 2017 to October 2018. The program focus on the corrosion behaviors of low alloy steel and austenite stainless steel in CO2/O2 environment under high-temperature conditions (200°C and 320°C). And also participated in a project for an oilfield focus on the corrosion behavior of carbon steel in H2S/CO2 environment. I started my PhD at University of Leeds in April 2019, focus on the corrosion and stress corrosion cracking behavior of stainless steel under HTHP conditions, mainly focus on the evolution of passive film, pitting behavior and their relationship with material failure.
