Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. I obtained my BS in Microelectronics from Nankai University and my PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Rice University. Subsequently, I completed a postdoctoral research in the Department of Materials Science and Nanoengineering at Rice University before joining George Mason University. I am a recipient of the Franz and Frances Brotzen Fellowship Award. My current research interests include synthesis and applications of advanced materials in energy and water areas.
