My PhD research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (advisors: T. Alan Hatton and Gregory C. Rutledge, Department of Chemical Engineering) focuses on the rational design of polymer-based electrochemical interfaces, by engineering the three key constituents, including functional, electrochemically active, polymeric materials, the electrode and the electrolyte.

My postdoc work at Cornell University (advisor: Peng Chen, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology) is centered on the development of single-molecule catalysis imaging techniques that can accelerate the discovery of materials design principles for energy, environmental and biomedical applications.
