Dongyu Zhang PhD, 1st February 2021
Dongyu Zhang obtained her Mater degree in University of Science and Technology of China, majoring in applied chemistry. She is interested in stimuli responsive liquid crystal materials for liquid secretion.
By mimicking the natural liquid secretion phenomenon, smart liquid crystal polymeric materials can be made for robotic application such as “pick and place” or “chemical communication”. Her position is funded by China Scholarship Council. A fun fact about Dongyu is that she can “self-control” the motion of her ears.
