Research description:

I am interested in utilizing polypeptoids to study the effect of chain conformation on polymer thermodynamics. I am also interested in peptoids related to antifouling applications.


I grew up in Hangzhou, China, and graduated from Tsinghua University with a B.Eng. in Polymer Materials and Engineering and a B.A. in English Language (second major). I did my thesis project in Prof. Yanbin Huang's lab on drug–polymer crystalline inclusion complexes, and in the summer of 2015, I worked with Alex Briseño at UMass-Amherst on small molecules and oligomers for semiconductors. I love playing volleyball and also enjoy playing badminton in my free time.
