Chao Wang


Director of MSE Admissions
Ph.D. Brown University (’09)

Research Interests

  • Photochemical Solar Cells
  • Green Engineering
  • High-performance Catalysts

Professor Wang received his B.S in 2004 from the University of Science and Technology of China, and his M.S from Brown University in 2005. He also received his Ph.D. from Brown University (2009) before joining the Argonne National Laboratory in 2012 as a Postdoctoral Fellow.

The foreground of sustainability is built on efficient and environment-friendly schemes of energy conversion and storage as well as chemical transformations. His group targets such schemes by design, synthesis, and functionalization of new materials with nanoscale architectures finely tailored to achieve optimal performance for various applications. Specific topics of interest include electrochemical/photoelectrochemical CO2 reduction and rechargeable lithium batteries.
