Yi is a PhD student in the Department of Physics at King’s College London since 2018. Her research project is focusing on the synthesis of a novel non-toxic core-shell structured InZnP-based quantum dots (QDs) using a new phosphide precursor.
She did phase transfer to make the QDs water-soluble and studied their application in bioimaging. Prior to King’s, she obtained her master’s degree at Beijing University of Chemical Technology (Beijing, China) in 2018, where her work focused on thermally reversible silicone rubber & carbon nanotube composite based on the Diels-Alder reaction.
