I was born and brought up in GAOMI,an ancient and beautiful town with the recorded history of more than 3000 years. I focused upon the nano-structures of semiconducting ZnO during my master's research, and then studied the crystallization and conductivity of polythiophenes. Now I am carrying out the research on high-temperature resistant shape memory polyimides and their macro-scale applications,as well as the molecular machines at nano-scales. I am willing to carry out and share the fascinating research on chemistry with you.
