The Scherman Group

Yuchao Wu

Yuchao obtained his BSc. degree at the University of Warwick, then moved to Cambridge and continued his Master stuides in the Melville Lab under  supervision by Dr. Oren A. Scherman. Now he is a second year PhD student in the Scherman group. His research topic is about supramolecular self-assembly of functional colloidal particles via CB[n] host-guest interactions.
