Profile

For the past three years I have been working on my research project as well as being involved in different teaching activities. I have collaborated in the design of different workshops and worked as a graduate teaching assistant at the School of Architecture.

Research interests

Project title: 
Mechanical behaviour of laminated-bamboo composites

Project outline:
I aim to predict and simulate the mechanical performance of laminated-bamboo composites when used as structural elements. The research aims to provide a tool to assess laminated bamboo's structural performance for the construction of reliable small-to-midsize buildings.

Primary supervisor: 
Dr. Wen-Shao Chang
