About me

I am a chemist working in a chem-opti-material science laboratory. My interest is to design and fabricate all kind of stimuli-responsive materials, devices or systems. 

These responsive materials are based on chemically synthesized materials and then deform under various stimuli. And explore the relationship between the molecular structure of the material and the stimulus response.

I aim to provide novel materials and structural designs through my research, these materials can extend some new phenomenon to existing research fields.
