What was your method of explaining your thesis in 3 minutes?

My top priority is to let the general public understand why I am doing this research and why they should care about what I am doing during my Ph.D. study. So I avoid using any academic terms to confuse my audience. Instead, I use some parables to explain my ongoing work. Although my research focuses on a narrow field in engineering, I try to reveal potential benefits for the general public in the future. Therefore, they can gain interest in my research and quickly grab a general idea of my Ph.D. research.

What inspires you to do research?

I believe science and technology will make our life better. Exciting scientific progress happens every day, and I would like to get involved and contribute my energy.   

If you have to dedicate your research to anyone from the past, present, or future, who would it be and why?

I would like to dedicate my research to my beloved family members, including my wife and parents. They have always encouraged and supported me to pursue my dreams.
