Driscoll Research Group



I started my PhD in October 2014 and funded by the Cambridge International Scholarship (CISS) from Cambridge Trust. I got my Bachelor's Degree in Science from Lanzhou University, China and Master's Degree in Science from Peking University, China.

I've started my postdoc from March 2019.   

My research area includes tuning multi-functionalities using vertically aligned nanocomposites, magnetic and transport properties in oxide thin films. I am interested in Resistive Random Access Memories, Multiferroics and Magnetoelectrics.

My specialties are: growth of epitaxial films using Pulsed Laser Deposition, structural characterization using XRD (proficient in RSM) and AFM, as well as physical properties measurements (using SQUID, PPMS).
