Dr. P. (Pingping) Wen

Dr. Pingping Wen studied physics at Beijing Institute of Technology and got his bachelor’s degree there. Later in the same university, he started PhD research, investigating the underlying mechanisms of self-organization and patterning behaviours of soft matters. Now, he is working at TUDelft as a Postdoc Researcher, to understand the physics of high definition and ultra-fast mechanical sorting technology.
