Personal profile


I am a Research Associate at the Institute of Multiscale Thermofluids (IMT). I obtained my PhD certification in Aerospace Engineering at Beihang University in China. Prior to joining IMT, I had postdoctoral research experiences in Italy and the University of Strathclyde. 

Research Interests

My research mainly focuses on the computational rarefied gas dynamics, with emphasis on developing accurate and efficient numerical methods for kinetic equations and multiscale simulation. I am interested in studying the rarefied gas flow phenomena with a variety of engineering applications, e.g., high-altitude flight, micro-electro-mechanical system, unconventional gas production, vacuum science. Exploiting the unique features of rarefied gas to improve and innovate technologies is my long-term research goal.

I am also interested in the sophisticated modeling of nonequilibrium relaxation in shock-heated flow, occurring in the context of space exploration.
