Professor Junqiao Wu received a B.S. from Fudan University and a M.S. from Peking University, China, both in physics. He obtained a Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Berkeley for work on nitride semiconductors and highly mismatched semiconductor alloys. He did postdoctoral research in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University on phase transitions in transition metal oxide nanomaterials. He began his faculty appointment in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley in 2006. His honors include the Berkeley Fellowship, the 29th Ross N. Tucker Memorial Award, the U.C. Regents' Junior Faculty Fellowship, the Berkeley Presidential Chair Fellowship, 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, the Bakar Faculty Fellows Award, and elected Fellow from the American Physical Society (APS). He is currently the Chair of the Applied Science and Technology Graduate Group at UC Berkeley, and holds joint appointment at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
The Wu group explores novel properties and applications of strongly correlated electron materials with reduced dimensions, phase transitions at the nanoscale, and optoelectronic, thermal and thermoelectric properties of semiconductor alloys and interfaces. Prof. Wu has published over 200 widely cited papers in the fields. For details, please see ResearcherID and Google Scholar.
