I obtained my MSc degree from National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, and became a PhD student at University of St Andrews in 2012. My research focuses on the crystal growth of spinel structures using electron microscopy. Watching sci-fi movies and listening to music are my current interests outside work.

Originally from Norfolk, I gained an MChem from Nottingham Trent University in 2014, before starting at St Andrews that September. My research is currently focused on the non-classical crystal growth of MOFs; particularly those with interesting topology such as the kagome lattice structure found in MIL-68 based metal-organic frameworks. Outside of chemistry I enjoy reading, and officiating at swimming competitions, from beginner to national level.

I obtained my MSc degree in materials science from Hefei University of Technology, China in 2014. I’m currently studying for a PhD under the joint supervision of Prof John T.S. Irvine and Prof Wuzong Zhou. My research focuses on alternative anode for solid oxide fuel cells, particularly on deficient and excess perovskite. During my spare time, I enjoy watching movies and sports.

I graduated in 2015 with a BSc degree in Chemistry and Law from Fudan University and recently started a PhD at the University of St Andrews. Previously, as an exchange student I visited University of British Columbia and University of Tokyo for one and two months, respectively. During my spare time, I enjoy listening to music, watching TV and doing sports.

I completed my BSc in Nanjing Forestry University and did projects concerning paper making with enzymes and nanoparticles synthesis and characterization. My PhD project will concentrate on electron microscopic studies of crystal growth under the supervision of Prof. Wuzong Zhou. I like playing the guitar and football, and I support Juventus.
