About Me

Biographical Info

I obtained my B.S. degree from National Taiwan University (NTU), Department of Chemical Engineering in Taiwan in 2011, and enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Prof. Kuo-Chuan Ho’s group. From March 2013 to March 2014, I joined The Hupp Group in Northwestern University as a predoctoral fellow. After obtaining my Ph.D. degree in NTU, I returned to The Hupp Group as a postdoc from September 2016. I launched an independent research group in Department of Chemical Engineering, National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan in August 2018. The research in our group focuses on the design and synthesis of a range of advanced porous materials, including metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), MOF-based nanocomposites and relevant high-surface-area inorganic oxides for several electrochemical applications such as charge storage, electrocatalysis and electrochemical sensors.
