  • I am looking for motivated undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and visiting scholars to join my research group.

 Degrees Earned

  • Ph.D., 2012, Washington State University
  • M.S., 2008/07, Washington State University/Nanjing University
  • B.S., 2003, Nanjing University


  • 2016-        : Assistant Professor, The University of Mississippi
  • 2015-2016: Research Associate, The University of Texas at Austin

Research Interests

My interests lie in the inter-disciplinary research on physical acoustics and fluid dynamics. The research take a combination of experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches to study problems in the areas of physical oceanography, ocean acoustics, and physical acoustics. My current interests include:

  • Ocean waves and acoustics (internal waves, surface waves, sound propagation through a fluctuating ocean);
  • Physical acoustics (radiation forces and torques, vortex beams and singular acoustics, and acoustic metamaterials).
