Jin Gong came to Japan for doing her PhD after graduating from Zhengzhou University with her bachelor and master degree in China. In 2008 she received her doctorate from Okayama University for research performed in the laboratory of professor Kunio Kimura on synthesis and morphology control of high-performace aromatic polymers. Thereafter, she moved to Yamagata University and started the research on polymer gels. Since April 2015 she is head of the Research Group for Crystalline Gels at Yamagata University. Her current research interest is centered around the synthesis and applications of high-performance crystalline gels with diverse functions, as thermosensitivity, shape memory, energy (heat/cold) storage. She is focusing on the development of particles and fibers for crystalline gels as well.
