Biography:

I am a Research Associate at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, working on Bistable Composite Technologies.  My PhD was at the School of Engineering, University of Hull (UoH), from Sep 2013 to Sep 2016, focused on viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composites (VPPMCs).  After my PhD, I served as Research Associate/Fellow at the UoH for 8 months, and moved to Cambridge in July 2017.

Before coming to the UK, I was born and raised in Shanxi, China.  I started to work on polymeric matrix composites since I was an undergraduate student back to 2006.  I did my BSc (in Composites Science and Engineering), BBA (in Business Administration) and MSc (in Materials Science) at the North University of China.  As time goes on, doing research in the field of Materials Science and Engineering become my primary interest and profession in my life.  I am enthusiastic and enjoy both in delivering knowledge and overcoming challenges from cutting-edge research.

Research Interests

Polymer-matrix Composites

Morphing Composite Structures

Finite Element Analysis

Elasticity and Viscoelasticity

Research Supervision

Supervise students on their research projects.

Teaching

Teaching assistant of the Structural Design Course.

Other Professional Activities

I am on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Postdoctoral Research and active in reviewing manuscripts for international journals as listed below, and have been recognised as an Outstanding Reviewer by ELSEVIER:

Composites Part B-Engineering; Archives of Civil and Mechanical Engineering; Journal of Applied Polymer Science; Journal of Composite Materials; Mechanics of Time-Dependent Materials.
