Mechanical Engineer Jul. 2015 – present

Developed a wavelet basis function approach (WBFA) method in MATLAB for Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT), and validate the numerical results in COMSOL and ANSYS. The WBFA method significantly accelerated reconstruction time from 3 hours to less than 5 minutes, and provided solutions for dynamic EIT. University of Notre Dame Notre Dame, IN.

Graduate Research Assistant Jun. 2013 – present

Implemented a wavelet adaptive mesh refinement (WAMR) technique in MATLAB for EIT, and compare the numerical results with commercial software in COMSOL and ANSYS, the WAMR technique significantly accelerated reconstruction time of 25.4%, accuracy maintained 98% of its traditional counterpart, and provided feasible solutions for 3D EIT.

Represented a piezo-resistivity model for Impediography, and perfectly captured the electro-mechanical behavior. University of Science and Technology of China Anhui, China Graduate Research Assistant Sept. 2010 – Jun. 2013

Quantified a damping model in OriginLab for Magnetorheological Elastomers (MREs), the difference between model response and experimental results is less than 5%, provided guidelines for accurate damping control of MREs based damper and isolator.

Prepared SiC- strengthened MREs with enhanced mechanical performance, and the initial storage modulus is 2.16 times larger than the traditional counterparts, and proposed suggestions for MREs’ mechanical performance control.

Investigated the fatigue performance of MREs under cyclic-loading, proposed novel SiC-based MREs with enhanced mechanical performance under cyclic-loading, and proposed feasible suggestions for lifespan evaluation of MREs based devices. Hefei University of Technology Anhui, China

Research Assistant Sept. 2008 – Aug. 2010

Established a Fluid-structure interaction model in FLUENT to evaluate the Fluid-structural interaction performance of submerged tunnels, analyzed the fields near the submerged tunnels, and proposed suggestions on maintaining the structure stability.

Built a Fluid-structure interaction model in ANSYS to evaluate the borehole wall stability in drilling procedure, investigated the influencing parameters that had an impact on the drilling stability, and proposed guidelines for maintaining drilling stability. SKILLS
