I am currently pursuing my PhD degree in the department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University, with Prof. Robert P.H. Chang. My research is focused on infrared plasmonics with transparent conducting oxide nanomaterials. I am also working on three dimensional nanostructures for solar energy conversion, such as dye sensitized solar cells and photoelectrochemical water splitting. Besides working at Northwestern campus, I am also a guest student researcher at the Center for Nanoscale Materials, Argonne National Laboratory.
I obtained my Bachelor degree in Materials Science and Engineering at 2009 from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, with highest distinction (50 out of 4000), and a Master degree in Materials Science and Engineering at 2011 from Northwestern University. During my Master degree, I worked with Prof. Monica Olvera de la Cruz.
