Dr. Yibin Zhou

Yibin received his PhD in Science from South China University of Technology in 2023. His previous research is mainly focused on the design, synthesis, and application of organic small molecules/supramolecular materials. Dr. Zhou joined Liu’s Lab as a postdoc researcher in September 2023. His research interests are focused on the synthesis of organic semiconductor materials and device construction.
