Chunqiu completed post-doctoral training in The National Center for Nanoscience and Technology after obtaining a Ph.D. from Jilin University in China. His research interests cover a broad spectrum of biochemistry, nanoscience and technology, including, self-assembled amphiphiles, aggregation-induced emission hydrogels, nano-drug/gene delivery systems, and artificial enzymes. Presently, Chunqiu is working as a post-doctoral Research Associate at The City University of New York under the supervision of Prof. Rein V. Ulijn (CUNY ASRC & Hunter College) and Prof. Charles Maldarelli (CCNY) researching self-propelled colloidal motors fueled by biocompatible materials.
