I was born and raised in Taipei City, Taiwan, and completed my B.S. and M.S. study at National Chiao-Tung University (NCTU), which is one of the most prestigious research universities in Taiwan. Inspired by the molecular electronics research works done by the Stoddart/Heath collaboration, I moved to UCLA to pursue my Ph.D. study as a joint student between Prof. K.-L. Wang (Dept. of Electrical Engineering, UCLA) and Prof. J. F. Stoddart. After graduation I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof Omar M. Yaghi's research group at UCLA and UC Berkeley before returning to the Stoddart group.
Besides research, another passion in my life is music. I own a huge collection of CDs, mostly classic rock, blues, and country music. Usually every month I'd spend several nights out in downtown Chicago to see my favorite artists playing live. I'm also a sports fan in general. My favorite teams are the Los Angeles Dodgers and the UCLA Bruins (men's basketball). I guess I might not have chance to see Northwestern playing against UCLA in the NCAA tournament, but I'll definitely cheer for the Dodgers when they come to Wrigley Field.
