I joined Princeton University to pursue a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering in September 2017. I received my bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In the spring of 2017, I did an internship working as a product design engineer in Apple Inc. based in Shanghai. In the summer of 2019, I did a research intern in Facebook Inc. based in Redmond.
My current research interest lies in the intersection of computational mechanics and machine learning. In the Form Finding Lab, I work on optimal designs of mechanical metamaterials with data-driven methods. I am also interested in applying reinforcement learning algorithms to controls of soft materials.
