Phone:   0141 330 2536
I’m a Chinese girl from Shanghai. I gained my bachelor and masters degree in Shanghai University. I then started my PhD study in the Cronin group in 2012. My research focuses on designing non-conventional POMs and investigating their novel properties. My hobbies are travelling, seeing movies, and photographing. And I like roller coasters.
