I am from the Hunan province of China. For my undergraduate studies, I spent 4 years at Southeast University, where my first supervisor Professor Guodong Fu aroused my interest in chemical research. I began my research with the preparation of nanofibers, combining electrospinning with novel polymerization methods. In the fall of 2007, I moved to East China University of Science and Technology to start my graduate career – majoring in Applied Chemistry – and my research focused on the synthesis of functional silica nanomaterials and their application to biological systems. I was fortunate enough to be supervised simultaneously by Professor Jinlong Zhang and Associate Professor Lingzhi Wang, and they helped to spark my interest in the fantastic world of nanotechnology. I enjoyed the time I spent working in the lab and I have learned basic knowledge of nanomaterials, especially mesoporous silica, and gained many experimental skills and experience. I recently joined Professor Stoddart's Mechanostereochemistry Group as a visiting pre-doctoral scholar, since I am interested in molecular machines and I would like to combine them with my mesoporous silica and other materials to yield new systems on the nanoscale level. I believe I will learn much from this great group and enjoy a good time at Northwestern University.
