Tianhan received his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at Central South University, China under supervision of Prof. Feimeng Zhou. His research focused on the novel microelectrode fabrication, characterization and SECM related application. He also gets involved in the investigation of the potential drugs for neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's disease). He is currently working on the free radical determination and single cell imaging using nano-SECM.
