Xin obtained her PhD in Organic Chemistry from UBC in 2005, under the supervision of Dr. David Dolphin. She then worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow and sessional lecturer at UBC until she joined Kwantlen in 2008. She completed her MSc and BSc degrees in Chemistry at NanKai University, Tianjin, China.  During her graduate studies, Xin found teaching to be a very enjoyable and rewarding for her, and fulfilling her passion for helping, sharing and learning with both students and colleagues.  It was because of that experience that she was inspired her to take on teaching as career. Her research experience in her PhD program involved the design, synthesis and property studies of chlorin- and porphyrin-related molecules, and their applications as potential drug candidates in photodynamic therapy.
