Elvis is currently a Ph.D. student working in Prof. David Erickson’s lab at Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. His research focuses on Point of Care Diagnosis of Acute Febrile Illness using a Mobile Device, 
FEVERPHONE, a smartphone based molecular diagnostics platform for differential diagnosis of six common causes of acute febrile illness.

Prior to joining Cornell, Elvis was a visiting graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2015-2016 and worked in Mesoscale Nuclear Materials Laboratory under supervision of Prof. Michael Short at Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering, on the project of Multilayer Composite Fuel Cladding & Oxidation Experiments.

Elvis received his Master’s degree in Materials Engineering at McGill University in 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Roderick Guthrie (FRSC, FCAE, FCIM) & Dr. Mihaiela Isac, on the project of Aqueous Particle Sensor (APS) for Micro-bubble Detection. He received his BEng & BA dual degree in Energy & Power Engineering and English Language & Literature from the ‘Tsien Hsue-shen’ Honors College of Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2013.

Elvis has recently published work in ISIJ International, and Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B, and is participating in a team that has advanced to the semi-final round of the competition for the $20M NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE.
