Working as a professor at National University of Singapore in Chemistry Department. Completed PhD in Chemistry B. Eng, Beijing Technology and Business University, China; M.S. Chemistry, East Carolina University, U.S.A.; Ph.D. Chemistry, Northwestern University, U.S.A.; Postdoctoral Associate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, U.S.A.
he research activities of my group encompass supramolecular chemistry, materials science, and bioinorganic chemistry. We use classical chemical techniques as the underlying approach for assembling nanoscale building blocks into complex integrated systems and exploring new science and applications in diverse areas, including the interface between chemistry and biology, catalysis, materials science and nanotechnology. In particular, we are interested in controlling assemblies of dynamically interacting biological molecules and understanding of relations between structure and physical properties. Each of these areas requires development of fundamental skills of experimental chemistry - synthesis and characterization of new compounds, and skill in other techniques - surface spectroscopy, scanning probe and electron microscopies.
