I am an assistant professor at TU Delft, currently working in the CNS/ATM chair, Control and Simulation group, at the Aerospace Engineering Faculty. I am passionate about open-source , open science , and making air transportation more sustainable .
I was born in China and completed my bachelor’s degree in telecommunication at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. Then, I moved to Europe and obtained my master’s degree in aerospace at Polytechnic University of Catalonia. After that, I worked in Spain and France for a few years before continuing my doctoral research in the Netherlands, where I obtained my Ph.D. degree and currently work and live.
