In 2014, I completed my undergraduate studies in Materials Science and Engineering at the Central South University, China. My final year project was conducted at Monash University (Australia), where I employed density functional theory (DFT) to calculate the mechanical properties of metal organic frameworks. I received my MPhil (2014-2015) and PhD (2015-2018) in Materials Science at the University of Cambridge, where I studied novel halide perovskites under the supervision of Prof. Anthony K. Cheetham FRS and Dr. Paul D. Bristowe. I am interested in using first-principles methods, including DFT, to understand and predict properties of energy materials. When I am not doing science, I love travelling and photography.
