Dr Xu Wenshuo

Senior Research Scientist/Prof. Jamie Warner’s group

Dr Xu Wenshuo joined Oxford Suzhou Centre for Advanced Research (OSCAR) in 2019. Dr Xu’s research focus is on two-dimensional nanomaterials (such as graphene, boron nitride, several types of atomically thin transition metal dichalcogenides), including their monolayer growth via CVD method and the layer-by-layer assembly of vertical heterostructures). The current projects would contribute to the development of energy, environment, and electronic information, with multiple promising applications in electrocatalysts, optoelectronic devices, etc.
