I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Eric R. Dufresne at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. I have general research interests in different topics in soft matter physics. Currently, I am specifically focusing on the elasto-capillarity of soft materials.
Before coming to Switzerland, I was working with Prof. Heinrich Jaeger in the Physics Department at the University of Chicago in the United States and obtained my PhD in the year of 2015. After that, I joined Dufresne’s lab in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Yale. After one year of staying in New Haven (Connecticut), I moved to beautiful Zurich along with Eric in the summer of 2016.
Originally, I grew up in Changsha, a vibrant city in the middle of China. Before I came to the United States. I finished my Bachelor Degree of Science in Fudan University, where I did theoretical research of electromagnetic properties of gradient meta-surfaces.
