2022 SJTU International Graduate Student Spring Academic Forum was held online on May 18th2022. Over 200 audiences from different schools and institutions attended the online forum. This academic forum includes three different sessions, humanities and social sciences, science and engineering, as well as agricultural and medicine. Overall nine international graduate students from Germany, Russia ,U.S and other countries, out of 75 submissions were selected as presenters by the excellence of their research, and these presenters have shared their academic research and viewpoints with the audiences online.

Guests attending the forum included Vice President Xuemin Xuadministrators from Graduate School, International Affairs Division, Students Affairs Steering Committee, Graduate School of School of Medicine; International Exchange Office of School of Medicine. Prof. Xing Ruan, Dean of School of Design; Prof. David Hong, Vice Dean of Michigan University-Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute; Prof. Bo Zhu, Vice Dean of School of Agriculture and Biology as well as other supervisor representatives also attended the forum. The forum was moderated by Luke Johnston, Ph.D candidate from School of Mathematical Sciences and Titilayo Rachel Enigbokan, Ph.D candidate from China-UK Low Carbon College.

In the opening ceremony of the forum, Prof. Xuemin Xu, Vice President of SJTU delivered a welcome address and expressed her warm welcome to participating guests, in which she pointed out we are together going through an unprecedented challenge to minimize the impact of the pandemic on our lives and academia. However, our students have never ceased the pursuit of academic excellence. They worked hard to tackle the difficulties by optimizing learning through virtual classes and online research with supervisors and have made great progress and achievements during this special time. In the end, she expressed her wish that this student-led, research exchange-oriented activity enables voluntary learning, research and knowledge exchange and can provide an opportunity for students to exchange different perspectives and stimulate academic interests.

In the students presentation part, the first speech titled “Chinese Historical Architecture: Trends and Limitations in Recent International Scholarship”, was delivered by Abraham Zamcheck, Ph.D candidate from School of Design. He reviewed the context for the study of Chinese historical architectural both from the perspective of the historical founders of the field and in relation to more recent trends, and explored some of the historical and social background and implications to these developments. He also provided a basic overview of the historical importance of “叉手” roof support.

In the speech titled “Regulating Blockchain: Techno-Social and Legal Challenges”, Tamar Menteshashvili, Ph.D candidate from Koguan Law School probed the intersections and frictions between the law and blockchain, offering a well-rounded presentation of novel research and theory. The report was designed to have considerable value to policymakers, lawyers, scholars, and blockchain enterprises looking to better understand the many elements that will shape inevitable regulation.

In the following speech titled “Examining the Sustainable City Image of Shanghai from the Tourists’ and Residents’ Perspectives”, Say Wah Lee , Ph.D candidate from School of Media and Communication introduced her latest research which aims to assess the sustainable city image of Shanghai from the tourists’ and residents’ perspectives, and introduced new methods for sustainable urban evaluation, development, and communication.

Manuel Rissel, Ph.D candicate from School of Mathematical Sciences gave a speech titled “Controllability of Incompressible Flows”. He introduced the topic of mathematical flow control and briefly present the research on the controllability of incompressible fluids. This talk aims to briefly describe several mathematical aspects of flow control on the basis of simple examples.

In the speech titled “Weather-routing Algorithm for the Northern Sea Route”, Sibul Gleb, master student from School of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Civil Engineering introduced his research about the path-finding framework for the Northern Sea Route by using weather data as an input, which makes it possible to find the optimal vessel path for ice and non-ice route segments.

Nuri Erdem Ersoy, Ph.D candidate from UM-SJTU Joint Institute delivered a speech titled “Central Uprising Sheet in Simultaneous and Near-simultaneous Impact of Two High Kinetic Energy Droplets onto Dry Surface and Thin Liquid Film”. With video and pictures, he vividly introduced his research, in which he studied the impact dynamics phenomena, compare simultaneous and time-delayed impact dynamics of two droplets, and investigate the time evolution of a central uprising sheet formed between the two droplets impinged on dry or wet surfaces.

In the speech titled “Frequency Domain Resilient Consensus of Delayed Multiagent Systems”, Zahoor Ahmed, Ph.D candidate from School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering introduced a frequency domain consensus control scheme for the resiliency of delayed multi-agent system under attacks.

Dulguun Juramt, Master student from School of Medicine gave a speech titled “Camel Heavy Chain Antibody and Camelid PD-L1 Nanobody”. In this speech, she showed that the phage display technique was used to prepare PD-L1-binding nanobodies and analyze their antigen-binding activity, specificity, affinity, stability.

Kim Gowoon , Ph.D candidate from School of Agriculture and Biology gave a speech titled “Antibacterial Activity and Multi-targeting Mechanism of Dehydrocorydaline from Corydalis Turtschanoinovii Bess. Against Listeria Monocytogenes”. She suggested that dehydrocorydaline has potential as a natural and effective antibacterial agent with multi-target sites in pathogenic bacteria, and provides the basis for development of a new class of antibacterial agent.

After presentations, in the Q&A part, the speakers answered questions from audiences on their research progress, research application value, research limitations and contributions.

As Master Distinguished Lecture 10th Anniversary Workshop Series, the forum has provided a platform for international graduate students to introduce their research findings, and created an opportunity for Chinese and foreign graduate students to communicate and dialogue during the pandemic.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University Graduate School will continue to provide international students with rich learning experiences and multiple resources to cultivate internationally competitive talents and prepare them for a more complex and ever-changing world.
