Thank you for visiting this website. This is the place for you to know my science research, personal project, my life and interests, and more.

I don't like to be ordinary. That's why I drive stick. That's why fade my own denim and hand stitched my leather wallet. That's why I machined our own wedding ring. And that's why I built many things that can make difference. From prosthetic ankle to finger therapy robot, from human-safe robot to arm exoskeleton.
