B.Sc. in Nuclear Sciences National Tsing-Hua University 2002
Ph.D in Chemistry (Physical Chemistry) National Tsing-Hua Univeristy 2008

Tse-Luen (Erika) Wee was born in Taipei, Taiwan, got her B.Sc. in Nuclear S, graduated from National Tsing-Hua University (Hsinchu, Taiwan) in 2002.  Then got her Ph.D. from Department of Chemistry, National Tsing-Hua Univeristy with a research background of nanomaterials sciences with multiphoton laser scanning microscopy for observation and imaging of superficial as well as embedded objects in tissues, liquid media, semiconductors molecules as well as all the other materials of interest.
 In 2008, Erika got a government scholarship to work in University of California, Berkeley as a visiting scholar, focusing on the Observation of Correlated Emission Intensity and Polarization Fluctuations in Single type-1a Natural Diamond Nanoparticles, and the Structure and Function Study of Ribbon Synapses with Fluorescent Nanodiamond.
In 2009, Erika moved to Ottawa from Taipei, Taiwan, working for professor J.C Scaiano as a postdoctoral fellow in his advance photochemistry lab in Department of Chemistry, University of Ottawa.  Her research projects focus on the applications of spectroscopic techniques to the study of materials for lithography related work in the nanometer regime, and the imaging, design and utilization of making transition metal oxide catalysts for water oxidation. And the single-particle catalysis with colloidal or supported metal nanoparticles using Fluoresce Lifetime Imaging System.
