Biography

Education

Ph.D. - Structural Chemistry, Stockholm University, Sweden (2008)  

M. E. - University of Science and Technology Beijing& Beijing Laboratory of Electron Microscopy, China (2003)

B. E.  - University of Science and Technology Beijing, China (2000)

Roles and Interests

My role is to conduct collaborative research in the area of Cryo-electron microscopy (Cryo-EM), and help users on Cryo-EM and the three-dimensional reconstruction.

My interests focus on solving the structure of macromolecular complexes and soft matter using Cryo-EM method (single-particle cryo-EM and cryo electron tomography). Meanwhile, I am also interested in developing Cryo-EM method for its application at organic and inorganic interface.
