I am a first year chemistry student joint with Professor Van Duyne and Professor Schatz. I am from Beijing, China. My current research focuses on electrochemistry tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.

I received my B.S. in chemistry at Peking University. As an undergraduate, I worked on low-coordinate transition metal based single ion magnets supervised by Professor Song Gao. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting art museums and exploring new places, nice food and good music.
