  • 近十年来,我面向国际学术前沿,一直从事可动机构的系统研究,在国际上首次提出了一种可展机构的全新系统设计方法—几何覆盖(Tessellation)方法,并发明了多种基于三维机构的可展单元,构建空间大型可展结构;发明了三类新的闭合链空间过约束机构,并首次发现了一类拥有多个分叉点及运动路径而形成分叉闭合环路的特殊的空间机构。成功建立了一个以可动结构为核心,跨越可展结构,机构学与机器人学、工程折纸结构等多个学科的新兴前沿交叉科研领域。主要以机构运动学,力学为理论研究基础,以航空航天机构与机器人为应用研究平台,并将研究成果延伸和扩展至轻型环保材料、医疗微结构、可动建筑等领域。我的研究工作赋予了机构学这个古老的学科以新的生命力,在可展结构、可重构机构的理论与工程应用上取得了有重要影响的研究成果。

    本人已发表关于这些研究的国际期刊论文30余篇(33篇为SCI检索),其中含具有国际顶级期刊Science、350余年历史的英国皇家学报等一级期刊论文; 国际核心学术会议论文35篇;并著有关于这一研究的英文学术专著2部; 拥有国际发明专利1项、申请中国发明12项。近七年的新加坡南洋理工大学任职中,申请人主持并完成独立项目4项,合作项目2项,总经费达到760万人民币。并获得国际科技奖3项含英国外交部全球机遇基金的英国-新加坡科学合作奖,Zonta国际连续两年授予的全球航空科学领域最佳女博士Amelia Earhart Fellowship奖 (全球每年只有35人获奖)。同时获得国际科技展奖项4项,含新加坡科学与工程博览会优胜奖等,被邀请参加2006年英国皇家白金汉宫科学日展览和2005年英国皇家学会夏季科学展览。还先后两次获得新加坡南洋理工大学最佳启蒙导师奖。
