I received my Bachelor’s degree in School of Chemistry and Chemical engineering from Harbin Institute of Technology at Harbin, China in 2016. I have also studied Life Science at Pohang University of Science and Technology(POSTECH) in South Korea as an exchange student for one year in 2014. For my Ph.D. degree starting from Fall 2016, my current research interest is in Ozonolysis of hydrocarbon working with Dr. Subramaniam at Center for Environmentally Beneficial Catalysis (CEBC) at KU. During my free time, I enjoy playing basketball (KU has excellent basketball team), watching videos and reading novels.
