Research Assistant


I am from Ningbo, China. I received by B.A. and M.Eng. in Aerospace and Aerothermal Engineering from the University of Cambridge.


My research is predominantly in electroaerodynamic (EAD) aircraft propulsion. This novel electric propulsion technology could be used to make aircraft quieter and more sustainable. My other research interests are in plasma physics, aircraft design optimization, and nuclear fusion.
