Hello, there! Welcome to my personal website, and you are going to learn more about me from here. Meanwhile I will also show you some interesting things about the scientific journey I have been through as a nice feedback to your precious time!

Briefly introduce myself here:

My name is Chien-Hua Tu, and I am from Taiwan. Currently, I am performing my postdoc research in Prof. Karen Winey research group at University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). I am working on a research project to explore various approaches to efficiently recycle plastic waste and further transform into new polymer products with higher economic values, i.e., polymer upcycling. Before coming to USA, I have been staying in Germany for 4.5 years for my PhD study and a short postdoc, and now I am experiencing a different culture and environment! Excited!
