I graduated from Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT, China) majoring in chemical engineering. Then I got my master's degree in water and wastewater engineering at Cranfield University with a project of biosensors for rapid detection of illicit drugs in wastewater. Currently, I'm a PhD student in water supervised by Dr. Zhugen Yang and Dr. Pablo Campo Moreno.

Current activities

My PhD project is to develop a sensing system for microplastics detection in water. Also, i'm interested in interaction between microorganisms (e.g., algae and pathogens) and microplastics in water.
