Ms Zhou joined Chemistry Department of Tsinghua University in 1991, received M.Sc. and Ph. D degree from Tsinghua University in 2001 and 2008 respectively. Her research focuses on the applications of molecular spectroscopy, especially Infrared and Raman spectroscopy. Her research interest involves two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy, cultural relic identification and macroscopic quality control of traditional Chinese medicines and foodstuff using molecular spectroscopy. More than 60 papers and one book have been published. In addition, 3 patents have been gained.
