Photocatalytic CO2 Reduction to Fuels by Cu2O-Based Nanomaterials


Dr. Ying Yu obtained her Ph.D. degree from Nankai University, China, in 2000. She once worked as a postdoc under the supervision of Profs. P. K. Wong and Jimmy C. Yu in the Chinese University of Hong Kong during 2003-2004. From April, 2005 to May, 2006 she joined Princeton University as a visiting staff member. From June, 2006 to May, 2007, she was engaged in the study of nanotube arrays as a postdoc in Prof. Zhifeng Ren’s group at Boston College. Her current research areas include 1) CO2 conversion to organic fuel in photochemical, electrochemical and photoelectrochemical systems, 2) photocatalysis for organic pollutant degradation, and 3 nanostructured electrocatalysts for water splitting and N2 fixation. So far, 2 book chapters and more than 125 peer reviewed journal papers have been published and have been cited more than 5500 times, and her H-index reaches 40.
