Journal of Materials Chemistry A would like to give a warm welcome to our newest Associate Editor, Li-Zhu Wu who joined us last month. Li-Zhu is currently based at the Technical Insitute of Physics and Chemistry in China. She received her Ph.D. from the Institute of Photographic Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, under the supervision of Professor Chen-Ho Tung in 1995. From 1995−1998, she worked at the Institute of Photographic Chemistry as an associate professor. After a postdoctoral stay (1997−1998) at the University of Hong Kong working with Professor Chi-Ming Che, she returned to the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as a full professor.
Her research interests focus on photochemical conversion, including artificial photosynthesis, visible light catalysis for organic transformation, photoinduced electron transfer, energy transfer and chemical reactions in supramolecular systems. She has published more than 240 peer-reviewed articles, 2 books and 10 book chapters and holds 50 patents. She has been invited to give numerous lectures at international conferences, piquing interest worldwide.
Further information about Liz-Zhu can be found on her institution webpage.
