About Me

I am a Chinese, from Taiwan, living in the US, and I believe it is an advantage to be a cross-culture and cross-language candidate, especially in this highly globalized world, with China being a huge potential market and the impressive R&D progress being made in Taiwan and US. I enjoy challenges and I care about details; diligent, enthusiastic, organized and self-initiative are my tags. Up to now, I have 5 years of experience as a research assistant in the laboratory. By working on different projects in the lab, I got very familiar with different processes and skills to develop materials such as coating, sputtering, electroplating, etc. Also I have built up my knowledge and experience of different kinds of experiment process and equipment. I’m interesting in every new challenge. I believe every new experience can help me to get a lot of personal growth.

Research Experiences

- Research Assistant, Alternative Energy Lab, WSU. 2019.5 – NOW

• Synthesized solid state electrolyte using P2S5-Li2S.

• Improved electrochemical performance of Li-S battery by adding Zn additive and Cu additive into the electrolyte.

• Used the method of tape casting to make the sulfur cathode on a Li-S battery.

- Research Assistant, Ceramic Lab, CGU 2016.9-2018.6

• Topic: “Surface modification of sol-gel derived conductive lithium ion conducting membranes of lithium aluminum titanium phosphates and their applications in hybrid electrolyte lithium-air batteries”.

• Lithium Ion Conducting Membranes (LICMs) with high ion conductivity was prepared with a tape casting to block the reaction of aqueous electrolytes with lithium metal.

• A thin film of material was sputtered on the LICMs to prevent the LICMs reacting with the lithium.

• Used SEM, XRD and EDS to examine structure and morphology of LICM and LiPON thin film, and analyzed impedance using EIS.

• Used ICP and XPS to analyze target ingredient and film ingredient.

- Undergraduate Researcher, Interface Electrochemistry, TTU 2014.9 - 2016.2

• Topic: “Deposition of molybdenum sulfur on conductive glass by electroplating as a counter electrode for dye- sensitized solar cell (DSSC)”.

• Aimed to discover replacement for Pt in counter electrode.

• Prepared MoS on conductive glass by electroplating in two steps.

• Applied SEM to examine surface, using Raman and EDS to analyze ingredient.

• Measured related parameters and calculated photovoltaic conversion efficiency.
