Nianqiang “Nick” Wu, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, has been named a Fellow of the Electrochemical Society. The distinction, granted to no more than 15 people annually, was established in 1989 to recognize advanced individual technological contributions in electrochemical and solid-state science and technology.
Wu is the first from WVU to be granted this distinction.
A materials scientist, Wu conducts research in photocatalysts and photoelectrochemical cells for solar energy harvesting, batteries and supercapacitors for energy storage, chemical sensors and biosensors for healthcare and environment monitoring. His research is funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Energy.
