Introducing Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry Editorial Board member Judy I-Chia Wu


We are delighted to welcome Professor Judy I-Chia Wu to the Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry Editorial Board!

Judy earned a BS (2004) in Chemistry from Tunghai University, Taiwan, and a PhD (2011) working with Professor Paul Schleyer, at the University of Georgia. In 2015, she began her independent career at the University of Houston, Department of Chemistry. She has received an IUPAC Young Chemist Award, an NSF CAREER Award, and an NIH MIRA award. She was selected as a Sloan Research Fellow in 2020.

Her current research interests span topics in ground and excited-state aromaticity and antiaromaticity, photochemistry, supramolecular chemistry, and enzyme catalysis.

She enjoys long walks with her dog, and writing from a cozy corner.
