My work:

I use a special kind of microscope to pick up atoms and place them wherever I want to, much like picking up toys using a claw machine at the arcade. I use the machine to make different patterns with the atoms. This is useful in investigating how the arrangement of atoms on the surface of materials may affect how they behave.


About me:

Country of Origin: Taiwan


I am a post-doctorate in the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nottingham. I studied for my PhD at the University of St Andrews. I used a microscope called scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) to investigate metal and surfaces of materials. By using an STM, I can see how the atoms arrange on the surface. In addition, I can use a tip to pick up an atom and drop the atom to the place I want.


Education:

  • Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from the Department of Chemistry, in National Cheng-Kung University, Taiwan

  • PhD from the School of Chemistry, University of St Andrews, Scotland

  • Currently a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nottingham

My favourite subject in school:

Chemistry


My hobbies:

Travelling, cooking and baking


How would I describe myself in three words?

Enthusiastic, motivated, practical


My dream job as a child:

Astronaut


My favourite scientist:

Don Eigler


My favourite animal:
