The 2024 PCCP Emerging Investigator Lectureship is awarded to Asst. Prof. Dongshuang Wu!

The PCCP Lectureship and themed issue recognise and support emerging scientists working in physical chemistry, chemical physics or biophysical chemistry, who are making outstanding contributions to their field, at an early stage of their careers.


In 2023, nominations were open to all and were made by leading researchers from around the world. After careful deliberation, Asst. Prof. Dongshuang Wu (Nanyang Technological University) was selected as the 2024 recipient by the PCCP Editorial Board. In addition, a number of the outstanding shortlisted nominees were selected and have been invited to contribute to an Emerging Investigators themed collection, which will be published in 2024/25.


Dongshuang Wu received her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry (including Chemical Physics) from the University of the Chinese Academy of Science, China. Before she moved to Singapore, she was formerly an Assistant professor and a specific research fellow both at Kyoto University (2014-2022). She is currently an assistant professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) (2022 – present). She has published more than 60 peer-reviewed research articles and 5 international patents.

Her group is developing nanomaterials with dedicatedly controlled composition, size, shape, and crystal structure, particularly metals and their alloys for catalysis, energy-related applications and beyond. She is interested in exploring the properties of surface/interface and try to reveal the hidden intrinsic factors/laws that link the structure of nanomaterials with target applications by using advanced characterizations.

As part of the Lectureship, Asst. Prof. Dongshuang Wu will be awarded a travel bursary of £1000 to attend and present at a leading international event in 2024/5, where she will be presented his Lectureship award. Asst.
