Jun Wang

In 2011, Jun Wang earned her BS degree in Textile Chemical Engineering from Donghua University. Following this, she awarded a postgraduate recommendation and scholarship from Donghua university and decided to persue her Ph.D. study at Department of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. There, she conducted her Ph.D. research in functional textile and flexible supercapacitor, advised by Professor Zaisheng Cai. After graduation, she joined the Esser-Kahn Lab as a postdoc in March 2018.
