Wan obtained her bachelor and master degrees in physics from Tsinghua University, working on spin-transport theories. She obtained her Ph.D. degree from Cornell University in 2013, where she worked with Prof. Dan Ralph on graphene electrochemistry and spintronics. After a 2-year postdoc in Prof. Jay Groves’ lab at UC-Berkeley, where she integrated graphene with bio-mimicking supported lipid bilayers, she joined Xu lab in 2015. She currently works on high-contrast visualization of graphene on transparent substrates, but also has broad interests in integrating graphene with biological studies.

Doory received a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Seoul National University in Korea in 2006. She completed her master's degree in 2008 from Seoul National University under the supervision of Prof. Seong Keun Kim, where she investigated electronically excited states of biomolecules and their complexes using resonant two-photonionization, UV-UV hole-burning techniques and theoretical calculation. She earned her PhD at Harvard University in 2015 with Prof. Xiaowei Zhuang, where she developed correlative super-resolution light microscopy and electron microscopy and applied super-resolution microscopy to investigate the distributions and interactions of purinosomes in the cell. She joined the Xu group at Berkeley in 2016.

Limin graduated from Peking University in 2010 with a Bachelor degree of Science in Chemistry. He obtained his Ph.D in Chemistry in 2016 from Arizona State University where he worked in Prof. Nongjian Tao's group. During his Ph.D study his researches mainly focus on single molecular electronics especially for DNA using STM break junction technique. He joined the Xu Group in 2016 and his current research interests involve combining STORM technique with electric and force measurements, to study the interplay between optical, electric and mechanic properties on the single molecular level.
