I’m a first year Chemistry graduate student jointly advised by Prof. Van Duyne and Prof. Schatz. I’m from Shanghai, China. I graduated from Peking University with a BS in Chemistry. In my undergraduate studies, my research mainly focused on CVD synthesis of different two-dimensional nanomaterials. Now my research interest is to study plasmonic reaction dynamics using surface-enhanced ultrafast Raman spectroscopy. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the game of go, reading science fiction novels, watching Japanese Anime, cooking and eating delicious food (especially meat!).
