Projects per year
I am currently working at the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering (NAOME) as a Lecturer. My research focuses on the vibration of structures and the interaction between structures and flow. My research results were published in leading international journals, including Nature Communications, Physical Review Letters, Science Advances, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Royal Society Interface, and Physics of Fluids.
I received my PhD degree from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2009. And then I worked there as a postdoctoral researcher for three years, focusing on the Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) in bio-inspired aquatic propulsion. Later I moved to the United States, working at the University of California, Merced as a postdoctoral researcher, investigating the FSI in the dust deposition and removal processes in solar farms. In 2013, I was awarded a K.C. Wong Postdoctoral Fellowship under the Newton International Fellowship scheme. I worked on FSI in bio-propulsion problems at the University of Strathclyde as a Royal Society Research Fellow for two years. After that, I started my Research Professorship at Northwestern Polytechnical University, studying the vibration phenomena involved in fluid and structural mechanical problems. In earlier 2019, I spent half a year working on fluid convection at the New York University, Shanghai Campus as an Adjunct Associate Research Professor. I joined the University of Strathclyde as a Chancellor's Fellow in July 2019 under the Strathclyde Global Talent Programme.
