Welcome! I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in Bioengineering at Harvard University (MA, USA), advised by Professor Jia Liu. I received my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (IL, USA) in December 2018, and my B.S. in Materials Science from Rice University(TX, USA) in May 2014. I was born and raised in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.
My current research involves designing and fabricating ultrasoft, stretchable nanoelectronic sensory systems for minimally invasive implantation and distribution into developing biological tissues for chronic, advanced biological and medical studies (Professor Jia Liu). My Ph.D. research explores the assembly of three-dimensional (3D) architectures using state-of-the-art electronic materials via mechanical buckling (Professor John A. Rogers and Professor Paul V. Braun). The concepts can be fully exploited in advanced microelectronics systems for stretchable, bio-integrated applications. My undergraduate research exploits the synthesis of graphene nanoribbons and their applications in energy and electronics (Professor James M. Tour, Rice University).
I have authored and co-authored in 20+ peer-reviewed journals including Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences U.S.A., Science Advances and Advanced Materials.
