Welcome to my website, I am a Ph.D. student at the University of California San Diego, which is also named No.1 Surf School in the USA. My research focuses on the design and fabrication of autonomous and intelligent micro/nanoscale machines and robots for various functions. One of my specific interests lies in developing nanoscale robots built with functional nanomaterials for healthcare and medical applications, for example, active drug delivery to improve treatments and nanoscale surgical tools to get high precision and minimized invasive effect.
Please see the Research section for details.
