ABOUT ME

I am a researcher in materials chemistry, currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University with Prof. Alberto Salleo and Prof. Zhenan Bao. My research focuses on semiconducting polymers, their processing and characterization, and their unique role in the future of electronics. Through novel processing strategies, I study the structure-to-property relationship especially for large-area manufacturing of electronic devices. The design/selection of functional materials, formulation of manufacturing-ready inks especially flexible electronics is my motivation. I strive to enable the leap that organic materials will soon take as the future of electronic devices.
