Junqiao Wu
Prof. Junqiao Wu received a BS from Fudan University and a MS from Peking University, China, both in physics. He obtained a PhD degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and did postdoctoral research in the Department of Chemistry at Harvard University. In 2006, he started his faculty appointment at UC Berkeley where he is now a Full Professor, as well as a faculty scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He is also a PI in the Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute. His honors include the 29th Ross N. Tucker Memorial Award, the US-NSF Career Award, the US-DOE Early Career Award, the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the White House, the Outstanding Alumni Award from Peking University China, and the Bakar Faculty Fellowship. The Wu group explores novel properties and applications of strongly correlated electron materials with reduced dimensions, and optoelectronic, thermal and thermoelectric properties of semiconductor alloys and interfaces. He has made ground-breaking contributions to development and understanding of narrow-bandgap nitride semiconductors, highly mismatched semiconductor alloys, defect physics of low-dimensional semiconductors, and thermal/thermoelectric physics of novel materials. He has published over 200 papers that have received over 15,000 citations. More information can be found at http://mse.berkeley.edu/~jwu
