My parents are both from Beijing, China, and I spent my childhood in China and the United Kingdom. I grew up speaking Mandarin and English. I also speak some (very rusty) French that I learned during middle school and when I lived in Switzerland. I am happy to chat about research (and anything, really) in either Mandarin or English 😄.
My maternal grandfather (his Baidu Scholar page) was a research scientist in the Aerospace Biomedical Engineering Laboratory in Beijing, affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, who worked on the Shenzhou space exploration programme and trained the first Chinese astronauts (he was always a huge role model for me!). I attended Imperial College London and EPFL for my undergraduate. At Imperial, I had the pleasure of befriending talented engineers and scientists such as Mike Chen, Ruiao Hu, Hitesh Kumar and Xing Liu.
In my spare time, I enjoy tasting food from all over the world, reading about history, playing tennis, listening to Mandopop and visiting other countries. I enjoy watching videos on Netflix and Xiaohongshu, one of the most popular Chinese social media apps alongside Douyin/TikTok.
我的姥爷也曾是位科研人员，曾就职于航天医学工程研究所和中国科学院，也参与过中国首次载人航天工程，包括培训中国第一批航天员。他是我从小的榜样！我本科就读于英国帝国理工和瑞士洛桑联邦理工。本科期间有幸结识了很多优秀的朋友，例如Mike Chen, Ruiao Hu, Hitesh Kumar 和 Xing Liu。
