PhD, Mechanical Engineering, NCTU, 2011-2017

BSE, Energy and Refrigerating Air-conditioning Engineering, NTUT, 2007-2011

He received his B.S. degree from Department of Energy and Refrigerating Air-Condition Engineering at National Taipei University of Technology (NTUT) in 2011 and received his Ph. D. degree from Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) under the supervision by Prof. Ming-Chang Lu and Prof. Chi-Chuan Wang in 2017. In 2015, He joined to the Nanoscale Energy-Fluids Transport Lab directed by Prof. Chuanhua Duan in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Boston University for ten months as a visiting scholar. After graduation, he worked as a postdoct in NCTU for continuing his research from 2018 to 2021. He is now an Assistant Professor of the Mechanical Engineering Department at NCHU (http://www.me.nchu.edu.tw/). His research focuses on enhancing phase-change heat transfer by micro-/nanostructured surfaces. His research expertise is in phase change heat transfer, superhydrophobic surface, icephobic surface, and Leidenfrost dynamics.
