I am currently doing PhD at the University of Auckland, NZ, under supervision of Giovanni Coco. My research interest is subaqueous sand ripples. My PhD study focuses on ripple geometry in response to the change in wave conditions. Laboratory experiments and high-resolution numerical simulations are used trying to understand the hydrodynamics over irregular ripple geometries and ripple evolution. The latest research outcome has been published in the journal ECSS and Geomorphology. I got my master degree at Hohai University, China. My previous research topic is the evolution of tidal flats.
