# About me

⚠️**Update of this website has stopped since Sept. 2021. My new website is here.**⚠️

- I am an Assistant Professor in Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at University of Pennsylvania.
**PhD & Postdoc Opening**: I am looking for PhD students and Postdocs to work on scientific machine learning starting from Fall 2021. Students in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, or related majors with proficient coding skills are welcome to apply. Please feel free to contact me with CV (and/or transcripts, sample publications) attached if you are interested. For more information, please check the PhD programs in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Applied Mathematics and Computational Science.- Prior to joining Penn, I was an Applied Mathematics Instructor in Department of Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2020 to 2021. I received my Ph.D. in Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University, working with Prof. George Em Karniadakis, in 2020. I received my B.Eng. degree in Department of Thermal Engineering at Tsinghua University in 2013.
- My current research interest is on scientific machine learning. My broad research interests focus on multiscale modeling and high performance computing.
