Mechatronic Systems Engineering doctoral student in the Faculty of Applied Sciences
I started my Ph.D. in Mechatronic System Engineering at SFU in Jan. 2021. Graduating from Chemical Engineering, I'm really excited to start a new field of my research here.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
SFU is a great university in engineering fields, especially Mechanical Engineering. It's a very unique environment for research. Besides, Vancouver is a great city to live in and enjoy the rest of your life.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?
I study at the MSE department and work on functional adsorbents for adsorption cooling systems. Mechatronics system engineering (MSE) is an interdisciplinary field dealing with the design of computer-controlled electromechanical systems.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
I really enjoy the close connection between novel research and industrialization in this field.
