Commencement of PhD: December 2016

Profile: I completed my master degree at National Taiwan University and my master research was about the development of novel antibiotics by mimicking natural products. Since December 2016, I started this exciting research journey with Charles in Dortmund, which focus on the exploration of modern catalysis to establish undiscovered bond formation in carbohydrates and the generation of biologically interesting carbohydrate derivatives. I believe chemistry is a platform where we as scientists utilize novel molecules to connect science to the world around us.
In my free time, I always devote myself to travelling around different countries. Travelling refreshes my mind and spurs my creativity to bring about unprecedented scientific concepts.
