International Women and Girls in Science Day Profile: DPhil Engineering Science Student Chenying Liu
Chenying Liu (Engineering Science, 2019), is fascinated by origami – its origin as art, its magic in maths, and its potential for engineering. She has managed to combine her fascination with her research which spans both origami, 3D printing and soft robots, and hopes to make some positive and tangible changes to society. Chenying designs and fabricates interesting origami mechanisms, and explores their potential to create intelligent robots with adaptability.
Chenying is passionate about outreach and access and has facilitated and taken part in a number of initiatives highlighting the career opportunities in Engineering Science, particularly for women. Chenying spent the first two years of her DPhil at St Hugh’s during which time she carried out her research in origami engineering. She migrated to Wolfson College in 2021 to take up the role of Welfare Officer but continues to be part of the St Hugh’s community as a social member of the MCR. She is also part of the Oxford Sparks Ambassador Scheme which provides hands-on training and support for researchers to create online videos to share with the wider public about their research.
Chenying said, ‘I enjoy my research in origami engineering and am keen to explore its potential in different aspects of our daily life like designing robots from origami. Engineering Science is a fascinating subject that provides a wide range of career opportunities and I would urge any women and girls to consider taking it up for their degree or DPhil’.
