I mainly taught four organic chemistry courses, including “General Chemistry”, “Asymmetric Synthesis”, “Fundamental Organic Chemistry Experiments” during the last four years. I have got “excellent” evaluations from students enrolled in these courses in all four years. In addition, I have been encouraging undergraduate students to carry out research in my research laboratory. Up to now, over 20 undergraduate students have ever entered my lab and some of them have continued their PhD study in oversea universities in USA and Singapore.
