Research Interests

Organic electronics have been highlighted because of their outstanding advantages such as solution process, light weight, fast and flexibility when compared to conventional electronics. However, the current organic electronics have critical problems with their low fracture resistance, environmental stability and defects evolution under mechanical loadings. Therefore, my ultimate goal in this field is to simultaneously improve the mechanical and electrical properties for reliable and high performance energy devices through interface engineering of multi-layered structures.
