Xing Yi Ling obtained her Bachelor Degree of Chemical Engineering, 1st Class Honors from the University of Adelaide, Australia in year 2000. She received her Master Degree of Chemical Engineering from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Institute of Materials Research & Engineering (IMRE) in September 2004. She pursued her Ph.D research under the supervision of Prof. David Reinhoudt and Prof. Jurriaan Huskens at the University of Twente, Netherlands. In October 2008, she received her PhD degree, with thesis entitled “From Supramolecular Chemistry to Nanotechnology: Assembly of 3D Nanostructures”. She was awarded the 2009 IUPAC Young Chemist award for her PhD research. In May 2009, she joined Prof. Peidong Yang at the University of California, Berkeley for postdoctoral research under the Rubicon fellowship from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO, NL). Xing Yi Ling joined CBC, NTU in July 2011.

Our research programs in our laboratory combine chemistry, nanotechnology, and materials science approaches to develop functional nanostructures for novel catalysis, diagnosis and sensing applications. Our research activities involve nanoparticle synthesis, surface chemistry, self-assembly, nanopatterning, nanofabrication, materials and device characterization. We use molecular-specific surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) to perform study on the fundamentals and applications of catalysis, sensing, diagnosis and plasmonic studies at real time, within nanometer range of spatial resolution and spectroscopically.
