Personal Summary

Excellent in systems integrating with backgrounds of electronics, engine design, ship design, data science and material science. Research on large-scale batteries and machine learning. Having experience in C++, Python, Java, Lua, Matlab and web page design. Join Predictive Modeling & Machine Learning Lab to conduct projects on autopilot system and route planning system. 

Focusing not only on academic performance and research achievement on batteries, I walked out of my country as a volunteer and convey green idea to students in the world. I'm not only an idealist but also an executor. What I'm concerned is how to make the world better even if a tiny step forward.
