I am currently a Post-Doc in the Biomedical Robotics Lab, part of the IIT's Advanced Robotics Department, since March, 2018. Before my Post-Doc, I did my PhD in the same lab, developing a hand-held device for delicate peripheral intravenous catheterization, supervised by Dr. Leonardo De Mattos and Prof. Brian Davies. Before joining IIT, I was a research assistance working with Prof. Tan U-Xuan and Prof. Foong Shaohui at the SUTD-MIT international design center in the Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore, where I was working on a project of designing compliant mechanisms using machine learning algorithms. I received my Master degree in Mechanical Engineering from National University of Singapore, Singapore, where I was a research engineer of the SMART FM Autonomous Group, NUS, working on machine vision. I received my Bachelor degree in Mechatronics from Nanjing University of Science and Technology, China.
