This note provides a biographical sketch of the author, and describes how she has conducted her researches including design of bio-mimetic materials with unique functions and surface forces measurement. Her experiences in biomimetic chemistry have helped her to uniquely pursue the measurement. Examples of her research on surface forces measurements are presented. They include: (1) demonstration of hydrogen-bonded molecular macroclusters formation on silica; (2) development of resonance shear measurement for confined liquids; and (3) development of twin-path surface forces apparatus for opaque samples.
