Wu Dongshuang
Nanyang Assistant Professor, School of Materials Science & Engineering
Dongshuang Wu is an assistant professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. She earned her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry (including Chemical Physics) from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (2014) and B. Eng. in Materials Chemistry from Heilongjiang University (2009). Prior to her appointment at NTU, she was a specific research fellow and an assistant professor both at the Kyoto University (2014-2022).
Dongshuang Wu is interested in the development of nanomaterials with dedicatedly controlled composition, size, shape, and crystal structure, particularly metals and their alloys for catalysis, energy-related applications and beyond. Her group is revealing the hidden intrinsic factors/laws that link the structure of nanomaterials with target applications, with the support from advanced characterization tools, theoretical methods, and data-driven studies.
