A Bit About Me

Chongyang Wu received a B.S. degree in science at Lanzhou University, China, in 2012, then joined Prof. Rui Wang’s Group for Master’s study. After obtaining M.S. degree in 2015, he continued his PhD studies in The University of Queensland under the supervision of Prof. David Fairlie. Currently, he is conducting his postdoctoral training at Westlake University in Prof. Huaimin Wang’s group. He is currently a Research Assistant Professor at Prof. Jianjun Cheng’s group at Westlake University.
