Name:Prof. Dunwei Wang
Personal Statement:Prof. Wang’s research covers a broad spectrum of materials chemistry, catalysis, and batteries, with the central theme being energy conversion and storage, as well as new ways of making small commodity chemicals.
Wang received his Ph.D. from Stanford in 2005. He joined Boston College in 2007 after working as a postdoctoral researcher at Caltech. Currently, he serves as the department head and is also the Vanderslice Chair professor. His research covers a broad spectrum of materials chemistry, catalysis, and batteries, with the central theme being energy conversion and storage, as well as new ways of making small commodity chemicals. In addition to serving as a co-PI for the CIC, he directs several other projects funded by NSF and DOE.
