I obtained my Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 2016 from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During my PhD, I worked with Prof. Gruebele and Prof. Lyding to investigate surface glassy dynamics and absorption spectroscopy of single quantum dots, using an ultrahigh vacuum optical scanning tunneling microscope. I joined the Van Duyne group in January 2017. In the Van Duyne group, I will study ultrahigh vacuum and electrochemical tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.
