• Jianbo Wu

    Dr. Jianbo Wu is a tenured associate professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MS&E) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2014. He obtained his B.S. and M.S. degrees at Zhejiang University in China in 2007, received his Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering from University of Rochester in US in 2012, and two years’ postdoctoral training in the Department of MS&E at the University of Illinois. His current research focuses on shape-controlled nanocrystals, fuel cell, electrocatalysis, functional materials for energy and environmental applications, and in situ TEM characterization to understanding the catalysts formation and degradation during catalysis sponsored by NSFC regular grant, National Key R&D Program of China, and Thousand Talents Program for Distinguished Young Scholars from Chinese Government.

    Research Direction

    (1) In situ TEM characterization to understanding the catalysts formation, catalysts evolution and degradation behaviors during catalysis including thermal catalysis, electrocatalysis and photo(electro)catalysis.
    (2) Gas-phase catalysis, liquid-phase catalysis, carbon dioxide reduction, hydrogen energy utilization, artificial photosynthesis, single-cell test system (key part: Membrane Electrode Assembly).

    Scientific Research Achievements

    He has published more than 130 high-level papers in the world's top magazines (mainly including Nat. Energy, Nat. Commun., Sci. Adv., Adv. Mater., Chem. Soc. Rev., Acc. Chem. Res., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Nano Lett., ACS Nano, ACS Energy Lett. etc.). His papers have been quoted more than 6200 times and his H-index has been up to 35. Moreover, 23 papers of them have the journal impact factors greater than 10. These results also received 6 domestic and international patents. As a leader of in-situ characterization, he was invited as the symposium session chairman of self-assembly and in-situ characterization of colloidal nanosystems held by materials research society (MRS) in the spring of 2019.
