Gaojie Yang is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Synthetic Neurobiology group. She completed her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Huazhong University of Science and Technololgy in China. During her doctoral research, she synthesized biomineral nanoparticles and drug-loaded nanoparticles, as well as in situ self-curing hydrogels, injectable photo-cured hydrogels, and bio-inspired porous scaffolds for tissue regeneration. Gaojie is now working on implosion fabrication, both on refining the technology, as well as applying 3D nanofabrication to design patterned nanostructures for application in optics, device design, and smart biomedical materials.
