Dr. He is an Assistant Professor in UCLA's Materials Science whose research focuses on biologically inspired materials based on stimuli-responsive polymers and micro/nanostructure fabrication, for applications in biomedicine, environment, and energy. The interdisciplinary research across “design – synthesis – properties – functions” involves polymer chemistry and physics, molecular design and synthesis, and studies of mechanical, optical and electrical properties of soft materials. Dr. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard and obtained her Ph.D. in Chemistry/Nano Optoelectronics; University of Cambridge.
