Associate Professor of Chemistry

Phone: (86)27-87543032


Academic Areas: coordination polymer

He studied chemistry at Qingdaol University from 2001 to 2005 for his bachelor’s degree . During 2005-2010, he studied at Xiamen University  for his doctor’s degree. After earning his doctor’s degree, he had worked at School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, huazhong university of science and technology. Now his research interests were focused on coordination polymers, porous frameworks, and molecular magnetism. He hope that the students who like coordination chemistry could join his research group to work together.

Academic Degrees
