xiaoqiang Huangqiang Zhao, VP Academic

Hi I’m Huangqiang, and my English name is Chandler. Why? Firstly, it sounds like my Chinese name Qiang. More importantly, I like Friends, because I really appreciate their friendship that they always support each trouble when they are in trouble, no matter how much quarrels they have in their daily life. My motto is ‘Work hard and play hard’, which is the way I think we can have a good life. I love history, especially Chinese history, although I didn’t have a systematic learning of history, but I like learning history as I consider history as a mirror of today’s life and we should get experience and lessons from history and avoid those silly mistakes happening again.

Hi everyone. This is Zach (Zhenhuan), a master student in CPS (Colloids, Polymers and Surfaces) program of the Department of Chemical Engineering. I love Chemistry and would like to be a good chemical engineer in the future. Now I am doing research on the area of Polymer and Surfactant Co-adsorption under the instruction of Prof. Robert D. Tilton. I used to study Chemistry when I was an undergraduate student in Shandong University in China.

So as an indivisible member of this family, I feel honored and would like to work with all of you guys, spare my passion and efforts to do something meaningful that can make this community warmer and better.
