Project: characterization of soft polymeric materials in compression
I earned my bachelor degree from Donghua University, China as a Shanghai Outstanding Graduate. During my undergraduate study, I got National Scholarship twice and Donghua University Scholarship three years in a row. I worked as a research assistant of the State 863 Project (China) on Resin-based Restorative Dental Materials for one year and received some refreshing results. This research experience solidified my interest in materials science and spurred me to pursue a higher degree. Now I am working with soft materials. Besides devoting myself to research, I took active part in volunteer program. Working as a full time 2010 Shanghai Expo volunteer was one of the most memorable experiences. I am always optimistic towards life and enjoy cooking.
