Dr. Wu got his PhD degree at The University of Tokyo in 2005. After that, he was the post-doc at Waseda Univ. with Prof. Prof. Kazuyuki Kuroda in Japan and at Iowa State Univ. with Prof. Victor Lin in USA from 2005 to 2008. He is currently a professor at the Dept. Chem. Eng., National Taiwan University (NTU), Taiwan. He has published more than 160 international journal papers with a total citation over 7400 times (h index 46). In 2018, he is selected as a Humboldt scholar from Humboldt Foundation, Germany and an outstanding research award from Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Taiwan. He is serving as editors for three SCI journals (Advanced Powder Technology, Scientific Reports and Journal of the Taiwan Institute of Chemical Engineers) and is in the editorial board member for two prestigious international journals (ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering (ACS) and Applied Catalysis B: Environmental (Elsevier)). His research interests include the design and synthesis of functional nanoporous materials for sustainable chemistry & engineering applications including biomass conversion, membrane separation, biomedicine and energy devices.
