I am a second-year Ph.D. candidate of Civil Engineering within the Mechanics, Materials, and Structures Group at Northwestern University. I received a Bachelors of Engineering in Civil Engineering from China Agricultural University (CAU), China, and a Masters of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Before joining Northwestern Univerisity, I worked on mechanical analysis of rail infrastructure in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Rail Transportation and Engineering Center (RailTEC). My current research interests include computational methods, computational mechanics, and computational geometry.
