________

I'm a distinguished post-doctoral fellow at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. My current reseach focus on developing novel nanomaterials and technologies for energy efficient carbon capture and mineralization, collabrating with Prof. Jason Ren and Prof. Claire White.

I received my PhD degree in Environmental Engineering in 2020 from University of California, Berkeley. Before that I obtained B.S. degree from Zhejiang University of Technology (China) in 2013, and M.S. degree in 2015 from Univeristy of Maryland, College Park.

       2D Nanomaterial Membranes

2D Nanomaterials such as graphene oxide, MoS2, and MXene have notably drawn much attention for their scalability, high mechanical strength, and single-atom-thick structure, leading to the fabrication of ultra-thin, high-efficiency membrane devices.

              Transport Mechanism

Molecules transporting in the confined 2D nanochannels can exhibit unique properties which cannot be observed in the bulk. I'm using advanced characteriztion tools and  computational methods to understand the  the mass transport phenomena.

         Environmental Applications

Clean water production, sustainable energy generation, and minimized carbon footprint have become global challenges. My research focus on proactively developing novel technologies such as RO/NF and MEC that have the potential to solve the water-energy-carbon nexus.
