We are delighted to welcome a new Community Board member to Materials Horizons – join us in welcoming Weilai Yu to the journal!!
The Materials Horizons Community Board is made up of early career researchers, such as PhD students and postdocs, that are fundamental in the future development of the materials field.
We are pleased to welcome Weilai Yu to this outstanding group of early career researchers.
Weilai Yu, Stanford University, USA
Dr. Weilai Yu is currently a postdoc scholar of Chemical Engineering at Stanford working with Prof. Zhenan Bao. In 2021, he obtained his Ph.D in Chemistry at Caltech working with Prof. Nathan S. Lewis. His research interests include solar fuels, electrochemistry, Li battery and materials interface.
