Dr. Luo YU
(Co-Supervised with Prof. Jimmy Yu)
Ph. D. Central China Normal University / University of Houston (2018)

About me: I got my Ph. D. degree in Condensed Matter Physics in 2018, and then I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Zhifeng Ren's group at University of Houston. In Aug. 2021, I joined Wang's group as a research asscociate. My research mainly focuses on developing non-precious catalysts for seawater splitting and carbon dioxide reduction in electrocatalysis and photocatalysis.

Professional Appointments:
About me: After my undergraduate studies in China, I left for England to start my journey as a researcher.  I obtained my D.Phil degree in Physical Chemistry/Electrochemistry at Oxford University with Prof. Richard Compton. My Ph. D research focused at the kinetic studies of electron transfer process. This was the time I developed my deep interest for electrochemistry. I then worked at the Nanyang Technological University with Prof. Zhichuan Xu for the design of materials for electrocatalysis. During which, I realized the importance of electrode kinetics and  decided to return to my roots in electrochemistry to start my postdoc research in solar fuels with Prof. Thomas J. Meyer at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During my stay in UNC, I had a wide exposure in both molecular catalysts and heterogeneous catalysts for (photo)electrocatalysis of CO2. It was also the time I got to be attracted by the theory of Proton Coupled Electron Transfer Process (PCET) and started to explore the mystery of electrode interface at a molecular level. Before joining CUHK, I was a postdoc research fellow with Prof. Edward Sargent at University of Toronto. It was this experience showing me how we can transfer technologies from the lab to the real world application. Outside the lab, one of my  dreams is to complete a full marathon although it is not thermodynamically and kinetically favourable to me. If you don't find me in the lab, most likely, I am climbing the hills at CUHK, overcoming the uphill process from the MTR station to the lab!
