I'm devoting myself in nanobiotechnology and sustainable energy field. My current research is focus on developing microfluidics biomedical device for Alzheimer and Parkinson disease based on electrochemistry, raman and other techniques; I’m also involving in the projects of developing novel nanocatalysts for fuel cell, biofuel cell as well as solar water splitting based on carbon nanostructures including carbon nanotubes, graphene, helical carbon nanofibers, and their modified derivatives.

I attained my PhD for developing biosenors under the supervision of Professor Shouzhuo Yao and Professor Qingji Xie from Hunan Normal University in China in 2009. Then, I moved to Sweden and started my postdoc carrier under the supervision of Professor Ludmilla Morozova-Roche, Department of medical biochemistry and biophysics, working on the production and application of metallic nanowires based on amyloid fibrils, development of electrochemical biosensors, the mechanism of formation and inhibition of amyloid protein ascribe to Alzheimer and Parkinson disease.

From 2011, I joined Professor Thomas Wågberg’s group, the Department of physics, as a postdoc research associate. I am working on the production and application of carbon based nanomaterials on biosensing, oxygen reduction reaction of nitrogen doped carbon nanotubes, SERS based biosening platform, development of biofuel and fuel cell by using precious metal nanoparticle.
