Biographical Information

Dr. Yating Wu was born in 1975. She obtained her B.S and M.S degrees in the department of Mechanical Engineering of Xi’an Petroleum University. After that, she further studied at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and became a faculty at the School of Materials Science and Engineering of SJTU immediately after she received her Ph.D degree in 2005. During 2008-2009, She spent one year doing research in Stuttgart University, Germany as a visiting scholar. She is currently an associate research fellow in Prof. Wenbin Hu’s group.


Research Interests

Her research focus is on the surface modification by electroless plating and electrodeposition, which is closely related to the properties of wear resistance, self-lubricating frication and in-situ liquid lubrication. In recent two years, she began to focus on the preparation and applications of metal oxides, such as cuprous oxide, tin oxide and other oxides by anodization.
