Dr. Jiaqi Yu


Jiaqi (Jackie) Yu received her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Wenyu Huang, from the Department of Chemistry at Iowa State University. During her doctoral studies, she constructed a library of heterostructured intermetallic nanomaterials using the colloidal synthesis method. She also delved into thermocatalysis, including propane dehydrogenation and methane reforming. In September 2022, she joined the Sargent Group at Northwestern University as a postdoctoral researcher. Her current research centers on anodic hydrocarbon upgrading and tandem thermo-electrocatalysis.
