Welcome to my personal academic website! I am an assistant professor at the Department of Mechanics and Engineering Science, Peking University. Before joining Peking University, I was a  postdoc researcher in the Automatic Control Laboratory at ETH Zurich, working with Prof. Florian Dorfler. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara, under the supervision of  Prof. Francesco Bullo.
