CEBC Bldg. B room 133A


Jian-Feng Wu received his B.S. and Ph. D. degrees from Chemistry and Chemical Department, Lanzhou University in 2008.6 and 2014.6, respectively. Jian-Feng entered into Prof. Wei Wang’s research group and focused on mechanistic study on methane activation and conversion by solid-state NMR during his doctoral research. The main research contents are identification of surface species, study the activity of surface species, and design new reactions based on the activity of surface species. Jian-Feng joined into Prof. Bala Subramaniam’s research group in 2014.7 as Postdoctoral Researcher. Jian-Feng focused on olefin metathesis reaction by fixed-bed reactor and studied the relationship of catalytic performance and active sites during his postdoctoral research.
