About Me

Using high-performance computing, I have been developing engineering software for quite a long time now. My postdoctoral research at MIT also focuses on developing a solver for viscoelastic complex fluids flow simulation mainly used in upstream oil industries, especially in reservoir stimulation design. I have also been actively engaged in many artificial intelligence projects and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Apple IOS mobile app development and logo designing are my hobbies, when I am tired of doing other stuff.
