First of all, I'm gay. I was born and raised in Hubei Province, The People's Republic of China. I completed my B.S. in Wuhan University, which has the most beautiful campus in China. From 2003, I started my PhD in the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, under the direction of Prof. Deqing Zhang and Academician Prof. Daoben Zhu. I worked on functional materials, including tunable organogels, molecular swiches and logic gates. After graduation, I joined the Stoddart Research Group in October 2008. I am sure that it will be a great time in my life. Apart from work, I enjoy my life with my wife, traveling, watching movies and I like playing soccer. Hopefully, My wife and I want to traveling around Europe in future.
