Dr. Yu received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Harvard University (with Professor Charles M. Lieber) in 2009, after graduating from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Chemistry with the highest honor in 2003. Dr. Yu did his postdoc research at Stanford University (2009-2012) with Professors Zhenan Bao, Yi Cui, and Eric Shaqfeh. Dr. Yu's research focuses on rational design and synthesis of functional nanoscale materials, fundamental understanding of their chemical and physical properties, and development of large-scale assembly and integration strategies to enable their technologically important applications in energy, electronics, environment and life sciences. He has published over 70 papers in the top-tier scientific journals (~10,500 total citations) including Science, Nature, Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Communications, PNAS, Chemical Society Reviews, Angewandte Chemie, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters, Energy & Environmental Sciences, Chem, ACS Nano, Nano Today, Nano Energy, Adv. Energy Mater., Adv. Funct. Mater., Chem. Mater., Small, etc, and many of his works have been featured in major science and technology media, such as Nature News, Science News, ABC News, Fox News, Forbes, Discover, Science Daily, R&D Magazine, MIT Technology Review, Popular Science, Ars Technica, etc. Dr. Yu is a member of the American Chemical Society (ACS), Materials Research Society (MRS), the Electrochemical Society (ECS), and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS). He has lead or co-lead 9 scientific symposia in ACS, MRS and ECS, and currently serve as advisory/editorial board member of Chem (Cell Press), Nature Scientific Reports, Frontiers in Energy Research, Science China-Materials (Science China Press), Energy Storage Materials (Elsevier), Applied Nanoscience (Springer). In addition, Dr. Yu contributes significant reviewing service to a number of premier scientific journals such as Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Materials, Nature Energy, Nature Reviews series, Nature Commun., Science Advances (AAAS), PNAS, Chem. Rev., Chem. Soc. Rev., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Nano Lett., Adv. Mater., Energy Environ. Sci., Chem. Sci., Chem, ACS Nano, Nano Today, and he has delivered over 70 invited academic seminars/lectures at international/national conferences and major universities.
