Jiaguo Yu obtained his Ph.D. degree in materials science in 2000 from Wuhan University of Technology, China. At the same time, he became a Professor of State Key Laboratory of Advanced Technology for Material Synthesis and Processing in Wuhan University of Technology in 2000. He was a Postdoctor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong from 2001 to 2004, a Visiting Scientist from 2005 to 2006 at the University of Bristol, and a Visiting Scholar from 2007 to 2008 at the University of Texas at Austin. In recent year, his research interests include semiconductor photocatalytic materials, water and air purification, photocatalytic hydrogen production, dye-sensitized solar cells, electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL), adsorption, and inorganic hollow microspheres. Owing to his prominent achievement, in 2006, he received a National Natural Science Foundation of China Award for Distinguished Young Scholars. Up to now, Yu has published more than 230 scientific papers in international journals, which are cited more than 9000 times (h-index 50), and has 19 patents. Currently, he is a Member of Chinese Energy Society, Chinese Materials Society, American Chemistry Society, and International Society of Electrochemistry. Also, he is a Member of the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Hazardous Materials (SCI IF: 3.723), the Open Inorganic Chemistry Journal, SRX Materials Science, and Rare Metals.
