Han BaoPhD

Research Scientist

Michigan State University

I am the research associate in the Plant Research Laboratory at the Michigan State University, U.S.A. I received my doctoral degree in 2009 at Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Science. I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Oklahoma State University, USA, from 2012-2016. My Ph.D. and postdoctoral work focused on photosynthesis, particularly photosynthetic water oxidation. I have been a research associate at the Plant Research Laboratory of the Michigan State University since 2016, where I investigates the photoprotective mechanism of cyanobacteria. Besides photosynthesis research, I also studied SPR-based biosensor at Beijing Institute of Technology and Austrian Institute of Technology (2009–2011).  My research interest lies on the molecular basis of photosynthesis, particularly the utilization of solar energy in photosynthesis and solar-driven fuel production.

Research Interests
