I am a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. I work with Professor Sigrid Adriaenssens on the mechanics of elastic rod/strip networks. I am interested in identifying/solving the rich equilibria of elastic networks, testing their stability, and using elastic networks to design 3D shapes/surfaces. 

 

I was born in Chongqing, China. I went to college in Beijing and graduated from Beihang University in 2011. Later I moved to Hangzhou to pursue a Master's degree in Structural Engineering at Zhejiang University. My Master's thesis focused on deployable structures.  

In 2015 spring, I moved to Virginia Tech to pursue PhD study in Engineering Mechanics. I worked with Professor James Hanna on a number of topics, including bifurcations of thin rods and strips, mechanics of pleating, bistability of creased thin disks etc.
