Personal profile


Dr. Ying Ji received her BSc (2009) and MSc (2012) in polymer science and engineering from Zhejiang University. She obtained her PhD degree in fiber science (2016) from Cornell University. Prior to joining Institute of Textiles and Clothing, she worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology, University of California, Los Angeles. Her research interests include developing biodegradable polymeric materials and functional materials for biomedical applications.

      1. Biodegradable polymeric materials

  • Synthetic amino acid based poly(ester amide)s, poly esters with tunable enzymatic and hydrolytic degradation profile.
  • Oxo-degradation and biodegradation of post-consumer polymeric materials.

       2. Functional materials for biomedical applications.

  • Synthesis and development of polymeric materials, including polyacrylates/methacrylates, cyclodextrin based polyrotaxane, biodegradable poly(ester amide)s, polyesters and natural polysaccharide derivatives (chitosan, hyaluronic acid, etc).
  • Developing mesoporous silica nanoparticles with fine-tuning of morphological properties, physicochemical properties and lipid/polymer coating, etc.
  • Surface engineering of materials for biointerface modulation.
