Associate Professor Department of Materials Science and Engineering Research Group
Dr. Meng GU is now Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the Southern University of Science and Technology. His team is specialized in the probing the structure-property relationship of energy-related materials using in-situ/aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy. Meng Gu received his Ph.D. degree (2011) in materials science in the University of California Davis. After joining EMSL in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, his research shifted to the study of energy materials including batteries materials and catalysts. Dr. Gu joined Dow Chemical in Michigan as a core R&D materials scientist in February 2014 focusing on the development of industrial catalysts, and advanced microscopy analysis of catalysis reactions. He has 101 peer-reviewed journal publications including Nature Communications, Physical Review Letters, Nano Letters, Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Advanced Materials, ACS nano, Angewandte Chemie, Nano Energy, ACS catalysis, Chemistry of Materials, Applied Physics Letters, PCCP, Advanced Functional Materials, Journal of Electrochemical Society, and etc. His publications have been cited more than 6200 times, and are highlighted by U.S. DOE, PNNL, SLAC national lab, London Center for Nanotechnology, Imperial College London and other social media. Dr. Gu has been awarded the Albert CREWE award from the Microscopy Society of America in Aug 2nd 2015 for his outstanding research.
