About this team member

LiZi received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Michigan in 2016. Her graduate research in Prof. Matzger’s group focused on the solubilization of compounds in crystallization systems with multiple components. She joined the Banaszak Holl group as a postdoctoral research fellow in the spring of 2017. Her project involved development of dielectric materials for industrial applications.

She is currently a principal scientist Principal Scientist in the Drug Products Department at STA Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.(STA), a WuXi AppTec Company.
