Graduate Student


Hanyu received his B.S. in 2019 from Tianjin University. His current interest is single molecular charge transport of conjugated



Yaxin Lv

Graduate Student


Yaxin is a joint student from Tianjin Polytechnic University, where she received her B.S. degree in 2019. She has

been studying the non-covalent interactions of organic electronic molecules since she joined the Zang group.


Qianfeng Gu

Research Assistant


Qianfeng joined our warm group as a research assistant in the summer of 2020. Before that, he worked on the synthesis and

characterization of both inorganic and organic materials as a master student at National University of Singapore. Currently, he is

mainly interested in investigating charge transport properties of conjugated organic semiconductors at multiple scales.
