Over the past decades, much advance has been made in the field of organic electronic materials in terms of electronic/optoelectronic performance, whereas the fundamental understanding of their solid-state mechanical properties from molecular level remains underexplored. The answers to this question will have profound implications across a wide range of disciplines, because of the key role of molecular-level designs, such as energy dissipation, assembly architecture and intermolecular forces, in determining the macroscopic properties (charge transport, adaptive mechanics, etc) of functional materials. My independent research program will focus in combining molecular chemistry and supramolecular chemistry to achieve precise control of electronic/mechanical properties of organic polymer materials at the molecular level. This provides a platform to develop mechanically adaptive electronic materials for diversified applications in wearable electronics, energy storage and health.
