Ph.D., Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2006

Post-Doc., City University of Hong Kong, Dept. of Physics and Materials Science, 2006-2009

Research Interests

Organic Chemistry, Nanomaterials, Functional Organic Semiconductor Materials, Organic Optoelectronic Materials

Research Experience and Accomplishments

    Mainly focused on preparation and property investigations of functional organic semiconductor nanomaterials and related device applications. The first to put forward the strategy of using directional supramolecular interactions as driving force to induce the formation of one or semi-one dimensional organic nanostructures. Some of the papers were published in top chemistry and materials science journals, including J. AM. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Chem. Commun., Adv. Mater., and Chem. Mater. etc., with one highlighted by Nature China.
