Primary office:
G440 M2SEC


I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree both in Petroleum Engineering from China University of Petroleum in 2013 and 2016, respectively. I worked on numerical simulation of polymer flooding and participated in two research projects of CNOOC (China National Offshore Oil Corporation) during my M.S. studies. I’m currently a Ph.D. student and a Graduate Research Assistant in Dr. Xiaoli (Laura) Li’s research group. My current research interest is the phase behavior of the confined fluids in unconventional reservoirs.
