Guang-Peng Wu was born in 1981 in Shangdong, China, and earned a BS from Shandong Polytechnic University in 2005. He was awarded his doctorate in 2012 at Dalian University of Technology under the guidance of Professor Xiao-Bing Lu with a dissertation titled Making CO2-based Crystalline and Functional Polymers. He then joined the research group of Donald J. Darensbourg at Texas A&M University as a postdoctoral fellow where he continued to develop new CO2-based polymers.
Dr. Wu is investigating the physics and self-assembly behavior of block copolymers. He is exploring this behavior in the context of supramolecular structures and through the use of polyelectrolytes, with a specific focus on its application in the field of nanolithography. His research interests include the design, synthesis, and characterization of polymers, with an emphasis on catalytic transformations and the control of polymer properties by changing the composition, architecture, and stereochemistry.
