I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Ethics Across Campus Program and the Division of Liberal Arts and International Studies at Colorado School of Mines. I am also completing my second Ph.D. degree in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Materials Engineering and a Ph.D. in Philosophy (concentration in Ethics of Technology and Engineering) from Dalian University of Technology (DUT) (Dalian, China).
I have broad teaching and research interests in the ethical, cultural, and policy perspectives of engineering practice and education. My research has drawn on theories, methods, and practices from a wide range of fields including philosophy of technology, engineering studies, engineering ethics, and engineering education.
From a sociocultural perspective, I understand engineering practice as a human performance. I am interested in exploring how the broader organizational, social, and ideological contexts shape and are shaped by the ways in which engineers became who they are (professional formation), do their work (engineering practice and cultures), and make their everyday ethical decisions (moral reasoning and decision-making). My work has appeared in journals such as Engineering Studies, History of Education, and Technology in Society.
