Wenchuang (Walter) Hu





Dr. Walter Hu received the B.S. degree from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 1999, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN, in 2004. Then, he spent a year as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. In September 2005, he joined The University of Texas at Dallas and currently a professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering.

Dr. Walter Hu's research has been focused on nanolithography, nanofabrication, nanostructures , biosensors and bioelectronics, and applications in semiconductors, medical, and renewable energy. His current research aims to develop CMOS based nano-sensor chips to detect biochemical molecules and miniature diagnostic system using mobile phones. He is also developing nanostructured materials and devices to enable high performance in solar cells, thermoelectric generators, sound isolation, and energy absorption with collaborators. He is also interested in developing nano-manufacturing processing and equipments. Dr. Hu's group has published over 115 peer-reviewed journal papers and conference abstracts/papers, and filed 8 patent applications. He is a senior member of IEEE, a member of Sigma Xi, AVS, MRS, ACS, and SPIE. He is an active reviewer for prestigious journals and national funding programs.

Dr. Hu has received National Science Foundation's CAREER award in 2010, NSF AIR award in 2012, and Senior Faculty Research Award of Jonsson School of The University of Texas at Dallas in 2013.
