About me

I obtained my bachelor’s degree (2015) and master’s’ degree (2017) from Harbin Institute of Technology in China. After that, in 2021, I finished my PhD degree at University of Warwick in United Kingdom, funded by Warwick Chancellor’s Scholarship. In 2022, I joined the Physics of fluids Group, University of Twente. I mainly work on interfacial fluid mechanics at the small scale though I have broad interests in many other scientific problems. So far, I have published about 10 first author papers including PNAS, JFM, PRF, PRE, Langmuir and so on.

About my research

My current research is about the influence of electrolytic nanobubbles on water electrolysis. In Twente University, I will use advanced molecular dynamics simulations and theories to investigate the dynamics of electrolytic nanobubbles produced by water splitting, which will enhance the detachment of bubbles and the efficiency of water electrolysis.
