Biographical Information

He was born in Henan province, China. He received his Master degree in Mechanic Engineering from the East China University of Science and Technology in 1995 and PhD in Materials Science from the Shanghai Jiaotong University in 2004. He then was a postdoctoral fellow in Chemistry at Tsinghua University in 2005. He had more than ten year’s professional experience in international companies as an Engineer and Manager before he joined Shanghai Jiaotong University again at 2008.


Research Interests

His research interests currently focus on functional polymers with photonic crystal structure collaborated with molecular imprinting or aptamers technology for specific molecules recognition and colorful display, controllable nano-synthesis for photovoltaic, new energy, catalysts and electric materials.
