I am a research scholar in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University, and a member of Lin's Hurricane Hazards and Risk Analysis research group (ninglin.princeton.edu). Prior to joining Princeton, I was a post-doctoral scientist in Davidson Laboratory at Stevens Institute of Technology. I have bachelor's and master's degrees in Civil Engineering and a Ph.D. degree in Engineering Science with an emphasis on Computational Hydro-Science.

The central theme of my research is fluid dynamics, as they arise in research and applications at the interface of environmental fluid mechanics, river engineering, and coastal physical oceanography. For example, one main aspect of my research is focused on developing and improving computational models of water circulation, storm surge, and wave to study physical processes in estuaries and coastal waters, flood hazards, and hurricane-generated waves. In addition to research in my discipline, I am interested in multi/interdisciplinary studies that bring together researchers from different fields. One interesting example is interactions between the physical, chemical, and biological processes in estuaries and coastal waters.
