A little bit something about myself and our life in Ningbo, China. Ningbo is a home of 7 million people, 2 hours away on high speed train from Shanghai, and only an hour away from Hangzhou. Just a hop skip away. Ningbo is good compromise between urban life and nature, and the campus is our home. Matt Read More

My final PhD theses is a project, it is definitely the biggest written project I will produce (approximately 100k words). Before I started writing, I had a quick look on what can possibly go wrong with such a lengthy document, as a precaution. For instance, the regular word processing software starts to be unreliable when Read More
