Tianchi is currently a visiting student researcher in Civil and Environmental Engineering Department of University of California, Berkeley. He obtained his Bachelor degree in 2015 from the Tongji University (Shanghai, China), and now he is a PhD candidate in Tongji University. His research is mainly about the application of Material Point Method to large deformation problem in geotechnial engineering.
