Dr. Xiao-Yu Wu is a postdoctoral associate at the Department of Mechanical Engineering in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Zhejiang University in 2009 and 2012, and Ph.D. from MIT in 2017. His research interests lie in developing smart and sustainable energy conversion and chemical production technologies based on the fundamental understanding of the kinetics and economics of these processes. Thermo-electro-chemical processes are of interest to achieve the system versatility. He received Chiang Chen Overseas Ph.D. Fellowship and Chu Ko-Chen Honor Scholarship.
Xiao-Yu was the Impact Assessment Fellow for Climate CoLab from 2015 to 2018, which is an open problem-solving platform on climate change and related fields. He also developed and gave lectures on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at MIT during IAP 2019.
