Academic Profile

My Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry was awarded by Nankai University, Tianjin, China. Then, I received my Master degree in Chemistry from Beijing University, China. I obtained my PhD degree in physical chemistry in University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA, where I studied the dynamics in condensed phase. Prior to Joining Nanyang Technological University, I worked on plasmonics as a postdoctoral fellow in Northwestern University.

I am interested in exploring various properties of nanomaterials by theoretical and computational tools. Currently, my research will focus on three directions: (1) design catalysts for energy-conversion-related reactions; (2) assembly of metallic nanostructures; and (3) optical properties of metal-semiconductor nanostructures.
