I am currently a postgraduate research student working in geotechnics. My research interest is in coupled thermo-hydro flow in partially saturated soils, using the advanced X-Ray micro-CT techniques and computational simulation.

Apart from the main research work, I am also doing research assistance for taught modules (demonstrator), university ambassador/helper for university activities (e.g. open day, meet & greet), and invigilator for exams.
