Resnick Second-Year Graduate Research Fellow
Weilai is a graduate student in chemistry working in the research group of Prof. Nathan S. Lewis and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP). His research interests lie in the fundamental study of the intrinsic materials durability and energy-conversion properties of Ⅲ-Ⅴ compound semiconductors for photoelectrochemical (PEC) solar fuel generation. This knowledge could lead to the construction of high-performance photoelectrodes to realize efficient and sustainable production of chemical fuels using sunlight under optimal conditions. Prior to Caltech, Weilai obtained his BSc degree in chemistry with highest honors from Wuhan University (WHU) in 2016. He spent a semester at Harvard University as a visiting undergraduate student (VUS) in 2015.
