Hai Qian

Graduate Student

Hometown: Beijing, P.R., China
Education: BSc in Chemistry, Nankai University (2009); MSc in Organic Chemistry, Nankai University (2012).

I was born and raised in Beijing, China. In 2005, I was admitted to Nankai University where I started my chemistry career in Prof. Yu Liu's group, under the supervision of Prof. Dong-sheng Guo. My research at Nankai focused on the molecular recognition and self-assembly of water-soluble calixarenes. To further pursue my supramolecular chemistry interests, I chose to join the Aprahamian group as a graduate student in the Fall of 2012. In my free time, I enjoy playing sports and travelling with my friends.
