Job Title





Jie joined the X-ray diffraction team as a Research Technical Professional in May 2023. She has extensive experience in the structural study of new compounds including organic/inorganic, and co-crystal, the investigation of the relationship between physical properties and crystal structures, and selective crystallization and phase transition of polymorphs.



Postdoctoral Researcher at Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères, Universite libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Belgium, 2018-2023, working with Prof. Yves H. Geerts on exploring new polymorphs and polymorphic selection of organic molecules using multiple crystallization methods (through melt/solution crystallization and surface crystallization methods such as spin-coating/dip coating), and investigation of thin films using multiple X-ray diffraction techniques (SCXRD, specular-XRD, XRR, GIXRD, and Pole Figures).

Research Technical Professional in State Key Laboratory of Crystal Materials, Shandong University (SDU), China, 2010-2018, managing the X-ray diffraction laboratory including Powder and single-crystal diffractometers and investigating solid-state phase transition of crystals, and the relationships between crystal structures and physical properties.

Ph.D. in Materials Science at Institute of Crystal Materials, Shandong University, China, 2013-2017, supervised by Prof. Xutao Tang on the study of Polymorphism, Solid-State Phase Transition, and Properties of Crystalline Molecular Complexes.

Master’s in Material Chemistry and Physics, Institute of Crystal Materials, Shandong University, China. 2005-2008
