About Me

I joined Prof. Dordick’s research group as a visiting research scholar from October 2016 to October 2017.  I have a material science background.

Former Education

Ph.D. Materials Science. Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Shanghai, China, 1997-2000.
M.S. Materials Science. Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Shanghai, China, 1989-1992.
B.S. Department of Materials Science. Lanzhou University, 1985-1989.

Research of Interest

  • Materials physics & chemistry.
  • Experienced in materials structure design, synthesis and properties.
  • Inorganic nanomaterials as MRI contrast agents and their application in rat brains.
  • Synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles passing through the blood-brain barrier.
  • Cognitive science and Artificial Intelligence.

Current Project

 I work on the characterization of ferritin and the mechanism for the opening of TRIV1 channels in cells by magnetic nanoparticles under magnetic field.
