Personal profile


I joined Queen’s University Belfast in 2007 as a lecturer. I worked in Prof Fengling Qing's group at Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry in 1998-1999. After obtaining my PhD degree in Computational Chemistry at Zhejiang University in Feb 2003 and a postdoc with Prof Arvi Rauk at University of Calgary Canada in the same year, I was a Welcome Trust research fellow in the Department of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry at University of Oxford with Prof W.Graham Richards, FRS in 2004-2006 and research fellow with Prof Artem Cherkasov in Department of Medicine, University of British Columbia, Canada in 2006-2007.

I have published over 60 full research articles in high-impact peer-reviewed journals. I have published in top chemistry journals J Am Chem Soc, Nature Communications, ACS Catalysis, Chem Comm, etc as the corresponding author. I have accomplished the interdisciplinary biotechnological project “Development of a computational and molecular biology platform between QUB and Almac”, in close collaboration with Almac.
