Research interest: My research is high strain rate multi-axial loading granular flow of boron carbide. Using pressure shear plate impact and Compression/Torsion Kolsky bar experiment, the strain rate can be reached up to 10^6s^-1 for granular material. Shear stress and normal stress are obtained during the experiments. Effects of grain size, normal pressure, shear strain rate and microstructure evolution on granular boron carbide will be investigated. My hobbies include cooking, swimming, playing table tennis, and watching movies!
