Jie Liu

Jie Liuliujie



I was born in 1990 in Hunan Province, PRC. I studied chemistry  and got  the

Bachelor’s degree (2012) in the College of Chemistry and Molecular Science (CCMS) ,

Wuhan  University. Now  I am a Master student for 2th year in CCMS, Wuhan University.

I joined in Lei’s Group since  April, 2010. My interest is Transition-Metal Catalyzed

Oxidative Coupling.
