Bingqi was born and raised in cold northeast China and later moved to Zhejiang. He attended Peking University in 2011, where he conducted undergraduate research in Prof. Zhen Yang and Prof. Jiahua Chen’s labs, working on the total synthesis of Schisandra nortriterpenoids. Determined to follow his total synthesis dream, he joined the Maimone Group in fall 2015. Outside of the lab, Bingqi likes all kinds of sports --- volleyball, badminton, tennis, baseball, billiards, soccer, as well as cycling. He also enjoys the beautiful sunshine, cool sea breeze and starry skies of Berkeley, where he can be found gazing at shining stars and observing meteor showers.
