Haoyu (Alex) Wu studied Master of chemistry in Exeter College, University of Oxford from 2012 to 2016. His thesis was on electronic characterisation of graphene nanoplatelets, studying the surface electrochemistry on nanoparticles and exploring their potential as nanoelectrodes.
After joining IBME, his interests span on hard-soft tissue interface engineering and chemical modification of biopolymers.
- Hard-soft tissue interface engineering
- Bioscaffold manufacture
- Biomaterial synthesis
- Chemical modification of electrospun membrane
- To entangle mineral nano particles into polymeric network via chemical cross-linkage, improving material's bio-ability without sacrificing the strength.
