  • Born and raised in China

  • Bachelor of Materials Engineering from Nanyang Technological University

  • My research career started with the synthesis of nanoparticles during undergrad years. However, I found more excitement in working on the electron microscopes. My current research is focusing on in situ nanomechanical testing of metallic nanocomposites in TEM. We are trying to find the link between microstructure and mechanical properties of materials. In our Cu/Mo nanocomposites with bicontinuous intertwined structure, simultaneous higher strength and good deformability were obtained.
