My MSc and BSc in Mechanical Engineering were awarded in China. Funded by the prestigious ORSAS, my PhD was studied in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds, one of the top Mechanical Engineering Schools in the UK. After I finished my PhD study, I worked as a research fellow in the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) at the University of Leeds. Before I took this academic position, I had contributed to a number of major grants in the iMBE, such as the EPSRC Programme Grant (Optimising Knee Therapies), the EPSRC Programme Grant (Biotribology of Articular Cartilage) and the Innovation and Knowledge Centre, etc. I have been invited to review a large number of papers by over twenty international journals, write book chapters and join the editorial board of international journals.

I am currently teaching the following modules: Biomedical Engineering Design, Biotribology, Engineering Mechanics, Finite Element Analysis. Moreover, I am also supervising undergraduate and postgraduate individual projects.  

Research interests

My research interests are primarily in the biotribology and biomechanics of  the hip, knee, and ankle joints.
