Congkai was born in China and she obtained her BSc in Chemical Engineering from Central South University in 2015, working on efficient fixation of CO2 into cyclic carbonates catalyzed by superbase/saccharide. She received her master degree supervised by Prof. Weiguo Cheng and Prof. Suojiang Zhang from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in July 2018, where she worked on highly efficient synthesis of poly(isosorbide carbonates) catalyzed by Ionic Liquids. Since October 2018, she started her PhD at the University of Warwick under the supervision of Professor David Haddleton, focusing on AIE-active polymers synthesis and applications.
