Chinese

I am a Chinese from Taiwan and a native speaker of Mandarin. I finished my B.S. in Agricultural Engineering from National Taiwan University (NTU).

Civil Engineering

I am very interested in the Instructor of Civil Engineering at WyzAnt. I believe that my coursework for B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. Degrees, interesting in hydrodynamics, environmental fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, engineering hydrology, and irrigation and drainage engineering, my capabilities through independent studies for both Master’s and Ph.D. Degrees, emphasizing on lake and river hydrodynamics, numerical simulations of coastal and estuarine circulations, and inundation in beach and coastal communities due to storm surge, and my experiences from water resources engineering practice, focusing on hydraulic and hydrologic modeling, floodplain management, and storm water protection, shall be of value to WyzAnt.

I obtained my B.S. degree in Agricultural Engineering from National Taiwan University (NTU) on June 1993. Through the core courses for the Agricultural Engineering program of NTU, I equipped the fundamental knowledge in engineering mathematics, numerical analysis, fluid mechanics, hydrology, groundwater, water resources engineering, drainage and irrigation engineering, and geotechnical engineering.

I obtained my M.S. degree in Civil Engineering specialized in Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Hydrology (EFM&H) from Stanford University on June 16, 1996. My advisor is Dr. Robert L. Street, the world-renown expert in turbulence and computational simulations of turbulent flows in natural environments. Under his advisement, I focused my study in advanced engineering mathematics, advanced numerical analysis, hydrodynamics, environmental fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, contaminants transport processes, water treatment processes, and waste water treatment processes.

I received an offering as a Staff Engineer at L.D. King, Inc. (LD King) in Ontario, California on February 10, 2004. At LD King, I performed the hydraulic and hydrologic analyses for the design of storm sewer in the land development projects and conducted the design of storm sewer in the land development projects. In detail, I was in charge of the design of storm sewer in the well-known massive residential development project, the Preserve at Chino, of the City of Chino, California. Furthermore, I became the Registered Civil Engineer (Professional Engineer) on June 25, 2004. Although I possessed abilities, capabilities, and experiences to be a successful water resources engineer, I decided to pursue my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Civil Engineering; hence, I left LD King on December 9, 2004.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from University of Southern California (USC) on December 16, 2010. My Ph.D. advisors are 1. Dr. Jiin-Jen L, the world-renown expert in harbor resonance phenomena and consequent damages, 2. Dr. L. Carter W, the world-renown expert in numerical analyses for engineering applications, especially in Finite-Element Method (FEM), and 3. Dr. Iraj N, the world-renown expert in Urban Hydrology, and the Chief Hydrologist of the County of Los Angeles. Under the advisement and the guidance of Drs. L, W, and N, I emphasized my courses in applied mathematics, advanced numerical analysis, advanced fluid mechanics, ocean and coastal engineering, and flood control hydrology and chose to study the oscillations of semi-enclosed water body induced by hurricanes after the occurrence of Hurricane Katrina on 2005. In order to accomplish this research, I built a numerical model using Finite-Volume Method (FVM) to solve the depth-averaged, non-linear shallow water equations (NLSW) governing the wind-induced oscillations in semi-enclosed water body. Because of my research achievements, I was invited to speech at the International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE) 2010 in Shanghai, China, and Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) Conference 2010 in Los Angeles, California, to demonstrate my research.

To be the Instructor in Civil Engineering at WyzAnt will be a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate my abilities, capabilities, and potentialities. I wish to be considered as a strong candidate of the Instructor in Civil Engineering at WyzAnt and I am also looking forward the future interview of this position.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
