Tongge joined the Berkeley BioMechanics Lab in Fall 2016 when he was an E.A.P. student at Berkeley as a senior.
Tongge’s research is mainly about computational micromechanics of bone tissue. For example, he uses linear and non-linear F.E.M. to study the monotonic and fatigue behaviors of mouse vertebra after treatment of clinical-level ionizing radiation. Some of his research also involves computer vision, specifically, using convoluted neural networks to process medical images, such as mouse vertebra micro-CT scan, to differentiate cortical and trabecular bone. Tongge has been teaching at Berkeley for eight semesters, including courses on Orthopaedic Biomechanics lectured by Prof. Keaveny, Biomaterials lectured by Prof. Pruitt, Finite Element Method lectured by Prof. Shadden, Matlab programming lectured by Prof. Papadopulos, etc
Before joining the BioMechanics Lab, Tongge received his B.S. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at Fudan University, Shanghai, P.R.C. in 2017.
Besides his lab work, Tongge enjoys photography (including aerial photography) and windsurfing!
