Background of Education

  • M.Eng. in Civil Infrastructural Engineering and Management, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (2022)

  • B.Eng. in Safety Science and Engineering, Southwest Jiaotong University (2021)


Research Areas

Hydrogen release and dispersion, Smart firefighting

Prizes and Awards

  • 2021   Excellent Student Scholarship 2021

Research Experience

  • Evacuation simulation in subway station (06/2018-06/2019)
    By using Excel and Pathfinder to simulate people of different ages in different situations when a fire occurs in a subway station to get the escape time, and determine the best escape route through the escape time 

  • Numerical study on the merging behaviors of two unequal fire sources in free space (01/2021-05/2021)
    By using Pyrosim to simulate the combustion of two unequal fire sources in free space, and the interaction between flames is studied by analyzing the combustion characteristics of the two fire sources
