Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

Name 
To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Research interests (for researchers only) 
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.

In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.

Contact details

About

Professor Yifeng Yang is the Director of the Institute of Cryogenics within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Prof Yang has engaged in active research for more than 30 years in the material and enabling sciences of high temperature superconductors, development of HTS in high field magnets and power electrical devices, and novel cryogenic engineering for new application in fundamental sciences. He is an internationally recognised experts in the ac losses and cryogenic stability of HTS materials and devices. As the director of the institute since 2004, he has secured more than £10m funding from UK research councils (EPSRC,STFC, InnovateUK), UK/European industry, EU Framework Programs, ITER, and CERN on a wide range of successful research projects including superconducting generators, 20T+ compact laboratory magnets, HTS conductors for future accelerator magnets and their cold-powering, cryogenic magic-angle-spinning NMR.

He is a member and vice chairman of the International Cryogenic Engineering Committee.
