G1 Engineering Sciences

I am a first year Engineering Science graduate student working in Professor Westervelt's lab. My part of the research in the lab is bio-related technolgy such as innovative bio-devices. I am very glad to be part of this class and have learnt much. In my research work, I occasionaly need to do experiments on some soft matters such as some small living biological organisms, cells, and vesicles. It really has given me so much insights about how soft matters work and interact with each other. All my acquired knowledge will definitely help me in research and enrich me more as a person.


Thoughts on my final project

My final project includes three parts. Throughout the entire semester, I have done much outside reading regarding soft matters and in this first part of my final project, I did a systematic investigation on the impacts of soft matter on modern technology and how soft matter changed the society and people's lives. My thoughts on the second part is motivated by Professor Morrison. It is regarding HOW the clouds become electrically charged. This is a very interesting topic and it is also inspired by our presentation on "Are Clouds Soft Matters?" Last part of my final project is of my own interest. Because I came from an electrical engineering background, I tried to connect electronics to soft matters and tried to seek how soft matters revolutionized not only the world of physics but also electrical devices. As a result, my final research topic is on organic electronics and polymer electronics. These three sub research topics, in total, encompass natural science, social science, and technology aspects of soft matters. I hope everyone enjoys my findings.
