Dr. Wenzhuo Wu is an Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering at Purdue University. Dr. Wu received his B.S. in Electronic Science and Technology from the University of Science and Technology of China, his M.E. in Electrical Engineering from the National University of Singapore, and his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2016, Dr. Wu received the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award for his research on 2D piezoelectric semiconductors for developing a new class of electronics controlled by mechanical signals. This award provides seed money for research by junior faculty at ORAU member institutions. Dr. Wu's research interests include smart adaptive electronics and optoelectronics, advanced nanomanufacturing, self-powered nanosystems, nanotechnology-enabled energy harvesting and storage, and synthesis and integration of advanced nanomaterials for functional systems.
