Future Plan
To develop methods and instrumentations that make the best use of the coherent x-ray beam produced by an x-ray free electron laser(XFEL), as well as to apply the XFEL to soft materials

Messages to Students
Always maintain 1) curiosity about the truth, 2) a heart that is impressionable to nature, and 3) a sense of mission (responsibility)
