The main focus of William’s current research is membrane signaling biophysics.  He investigates the physical principles of membrane signaling reactions, from a dynamical standpoint. 

William received his B.S. from National Taiwan University in Chemistry.  He then pursued his Ph.D. in Chemistry at University of California, Berkeley under the guidance of Prof. Jay Groves.  His doctoral work focused on developing experimental analysis to understand the timing mechanism, molecular organization, and catalysis of membrane recruitment events, connecting perspectives from single-molecule dynamics to small network response to cellular regulations.  He collaborates with many experts in the field, including Prof. John Kuriyan, Prof. Michael RosenProf. Ronald Vale.  William is a recipient of Yuan T. Lee Award in Chemistry.

In his little spare time, he enjoys underground music, elec. guitar, affordable hi-fi audio, contemporary novels, short scribbling, abstract doodling, and tasty food.
