I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at Nanolab (University of Southern California). I received the B.S. degree in Microelectronics from Peking University in 2009. Afterwards, I joined the department of Electrical Engineering in University of Southern California as a research assistant in Nanolab leaded by Professor Chongwu Zhou

My research has focused on nanotechnology and nanoelectronics. including:

• Synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials: 
 Selective growth of predominantly semiconducting carbon nanotube chemical vapor synthesis 

• Digital electronics of carbon nanotube transistors
 Hysteresis free short-channel carbon nanotube array transistors and logic circuit characterization

• Radio frequency electronics of high performance nanomaterial devices:
  Fabrication and characterization of carbon nanotube/graphene radio frequency transistors and circuits
   Hybrid circuit integration of carbon nanotube/graphene RF transistor with CMOS technology
