I have completed the Merit of Master degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the School of Engineering at the University of Leeds and served as course representative during the school period, I am now pursuing a doctorate in nuclear energy at the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Leeds.

I also served as the equipment debugger of 303 Research Institute of the third Research Institute of China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation.

I also obtained the Australian National Patent as the first author, Patent number: 2019100363.

Australian National Patent "Design of a crossed Twin-rotor UAV": The patent research direction is devoted to laying the theoretical foundation for the multi-module and multi-load development of UAV; the content covers replacing the ordinary quad rotor with two rotors whose rotation axes are not parallel and tilted outward, so as to increase the weight-bearing capacity of UAV. 

Research interests

The retrieval of nuclear waste from legacy facilities and its transfer to long-term storage is a top priority for the UK nuclear industry. Much of the waste is a suspension formed from corroding fuel and fuel cladding.

To design a reliable and safe retrieval process requires knowledge of the suspension rheology, a property that describes the flow of a material. Being able to measure the suspension rheology in its storage environment is desirable as it provides a more reliable measurement and eliminates the effect of sample handling and history.

Such measurements are currently difficult to make using traditional rheometer techniques, therefore, the current study will explore the development of a new compact rheometer which excites the microstructure of the suspension using high frequency resonance. Using rapid prototyping techniques, the study will develop a new torsional resonator for deployment in realistic industry environments to measure the viscoelasticity and yield stress of nuclear test materials.

I will be trained in a range of skills including laboratory practice, experimental techniques and design, as well as scientific English writing (technical reports and journal publications), presentation skills (research group and technical conferences), and supervisory skills through co-supervision of MSc project students.
