Yawen Wang

Ph.D., Professor


Ya-Wen Wang received a B.S. degree from Lanzhou University in 2000. She then joined Prof. Wei-Sheng Liu’s group at the same University as a graduate student and performed research in the field of lanthanide-based luminescence materials. She got his Ph.D. degree in the year of 2005 and then stayed at Lanzhou University as an associate professor of chemistry. In 2012, she was promoted to a full professorship. Her current research interests include the development of new fluorescence probes and the study of their recognition mechanisms.
