Ce Shi received her Bachelor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Science and Technology (USTC) at 2005. She is now a third year Ph.D. student working in Armani Research Group at Mork Family Department of USC.
For her undergraduate research, she was working on multifunctinal materials composed of superparamagnetic Ni/Co alloys nanorings loaded with gold nanoparticles, which can be applicated as multimodal imaging contrast agents. She is currently investigating hybrid microresonators to study optics interaction between nanoparticles and microtoroids. Besides studying physical phenomena, she also takes use of bimodal kinetics of the functionalized microdevices to improve detection specificity as biosensors.
