About

I was trained as a chemist, but has been doing research in the interdisciplinary areas of chemistry, applied physics, and engineering. My hometown is Nanjing, and my middle/high school is NFLS. After finishing my B.Sc in Nanjing University in 2006, I moved to Toronto for my doctoral study in Professor Geoffrey Ozin’s Materials Chemistry Lab at the University of Toronto. In June 2011, I got my degree and started a postdoctoral position in Professor Joanna Aizenberg’s Biomineralization and Biomimetics lab at Harvard.  Since November 2014, I have been working at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems at Stuttgart, Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellow. Here are my ResearcherID profile, ORCID page, and Google Scholar Profile. All of these is to say that I am a dead serious scientist.

For my non-science friends who are not interested in any of those resume stuff, fortunately, this site is more about my graphics than about my science. I am a firm believer that “that one image is worth a thousand words understates the power of images”. Simply put, words tell; images tell better.
