Nathan received the Bachelor of Science degree (First Class Hons) in Chemical Technology in 2013 at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the PhD degree in Inorganic, Organometallic and Materials Chemistry in 2019 at the University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Prof. Vivian W.-W. Yam. His research interest during the PhD study has focused on the development of novel photochromic organic and organometallic materials with interesting photo-controllable functions.

After his PhD study, Nathan continued his research in photo-responsive materials as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the same research group from 2019-2021. Then, He moved to Nano and Advanced Materials Institute (NAMI) as a senior engineer, working on the development of photochromic printing ink.

More recently, Nathan have joined the research group of Prof. Timothy M. Swager at MIT in March 2022 as a Postdoctoral Fellow, supported by the Croucher Foundation Fellowships.
