I obtained my undergraduate degree in naval architecture and ocean engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, in 2011. I then pursued my master degree of science at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), China. Particularly, I primarily worked on Hydrodynamics and VIM of a deep-draft semisubmersible concept designed for the South China Sea during the 2.5 years at SJTU. In August 2014, I moved to Trondheim, Norway due to a PhD position there. I stayed in the Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology. My PhD project works on fluid dynamics: wave-shear current interaction. I obtained my PhD degree in 2017 and then continued this topic in the same group for one more year as a postdoctoral researcher. I moved to Oxford at the end of August 2018, and am currently staying in the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, as a postdoctoral research assistant in wave modeling. My current project deals with surface waves propagating over varying bathymetry, focusing on the formation mechanism of rogue/freak/giant waves in a non-equilibrium state.
My research interests are in general broad. I am interested in (not limited to) water waves, wave-structure interaction, wave-current interaction, ocean wave models, and loads on offshore structures.
