I have been working on nano and biological materials for a total of eight years, focusing on their structural and chemical characteristics, as well as mechanical and biological functions. I have developed and utilized various computational tools that are powerful in revealing mechanisms of material behaviors, applied in a bottom-up approach.
I have a strong passion for materials designs and innovations which I believe will become a driving force to facilitate new applications of advanced manufacturing. I have been keeping working toward the goal, which is shown by that I published 40+ peer-reviewed papers on the topic. Many of these works appeared in journals with good impacts. I have presented my results in many conferences. More details can be found in my Research page and CV. Besides research, I love teaching, which is another essential component for educating young minds. I believe teaching has the most important goal to maximize the students’ potential and enthusiasm in learning, which is what I learnt when I teach as a teaching fellow for the undergraduate class in MIT.
