    “The preparation and characterization of DNA fluorescent silver nanocluster”scientific training in XXX University

    • Supervised by Researcher XXX Jun 2017 – Jul 2017
    • Synthesized fluorescent DNA silver nanoclusters by hybridized DNA duplexes.
    • Discovered the quadratic relationship between the maximum photoluminescence intensity and the concentration of magnesium acetate.

     

    “The retrieval of structural information about aqueous solutions from the near infrared spectroscopy”, College Students’ Innovation Project

    • Supervised by Prof XXX Mar 2018 – Mar 2019
    • Previous study showed that a board spectral feature of aqueous solutions in NIR can be resolved into 6 Gaussian peaks by a genetic algorithm to extract information about water structure. 5 of them can be assigned to 5 water components.
    • Self-learnt Matlab.
    • Developed knowledge-based genetic algorithm based on the knowledge of hydrogen bonding.
    • Improved the genetic algorithm by wavelet transform, binary coding, multi-objective selection operator.
    • Extracted the variation tendency of the relative contents of 9 water species.
    • Wrote a draft of a paper, which is being revised currently.

    “Understanding the instability of droplet with microion and ion distribution in non-aqueous droplets”, Mitacs Globalink Research Internship

    • Supervised by Associate Prof XXX May 2019 – Aug 2019
    • Molecular dynamic simulation can be applied in the analysis of the droplets generated by ESI, which deepens our understanding of ESI-MS. Previous research showed that the droplet with a nonfissile ion will acquire a shape of star with several spikes.
    • Self-learnt NAMD, Python and Tcl script language.
    • Investigated the effect of different solutes on star-shaped droplets by molecular dynamic simulation, and explained the seemingly contradictory result against Rayleigh model by volume effect.
    • Calculated ion distribution of non-aqueous droplets of different solvents by home-made Tcl script, and found an interesting discrepancy among the ion distribution in these droplets, which can be an interesting topic for future research.

    Thank you very much for replying and I realize that there are a lot of problems in my CV. I still have some additional questions.

    1. The scores and GPA shown on the transcript and ranking certificate of my university are 100-points system. Should I convert it to 4.0-points system?

    2. As for “The preparation and characterization of DNA fluorescent silver nanocluster”, I do not understand why it is wordy. Should I delete the first word “the”?

    3. In terms of “Supervised by Researcher XXX”, is “Researcher” the incorrect connotation? If yes, how can I translate his title “研究员”?
