Love, creativity, and hard work are the three pillars that bear the world.


Introduction

My name is Sheng Xu. I was born in Anhui province of China. Currently, I am a post-doc working with Professor Jane Wang at the Department of TAM in Cornell University. Before I joined Professor Wang's group, I spent one year at the Department of MAE in Princeton University as a post-doc with Professor Pino Martin. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering from Cornell University. My Ph.D. adviser was professor John Lumley. The minor members of my Ph.D. committee were professor Dietmar Rempfer and professor Sidney Leibovich.
