I received my Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering at Chongqing University in China. During my Master’s degree, I worked on the conversion of biomass to reducing sugars in ionic liquids. I am now working as a graduate research assistant with Professor Franklin (Feng) Tao on in-situ catalysis using high pressure scanning tunneling microscope. I am trying to find out how metal catalysts work in several gas reactions by investigating their surface restructure. I would like to pursue a career in research both in academia and industry after I graduate. In my spare time, I like watching movies and traveling.
