Professional Experience

I worked in the College of Life sciences and Bioengineering, Beijing Jiaotong University from 2009. Before that, I worked in the Institute of Process Engineering of Chinese Academy of Sciences for a period of time (March 2006 to November 2009). I am engaged in the research on life and health and green ecological environment, and recruit postgraduates from biotechnology, bioengineering, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, materials science, chemistry, bioinformatics, environment, computer and other fields.

Research Field

Focus on research in the cross field of life and health and environmental protection, with key research directions as follows:

Research on green space life support system, including: (1) special space plant cultivation based on nano materials; (2) Phytoremediation technology of heavy metal polluted environment.

The research on nano drug delivery carriers for tumor treatment ,mainly including liposomes and MOFs materials.
