Xiaodong Wu got the B.S. degree and Ph.D. degree at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1998 and 2002, respectively. As an Associate Professor at School of Materials Science and Engineering, Tsinghua University, Wu focused on rare earth metal‐based catalysts and exhaust purification materials. Wu’s research interests are rare earth catalytic materials and their applications in eliminating pollutants in automobile and plant exhausts, including (1) soot oxidation catalysts and particulate filters, (2) oxidation catalysts for hydrocarbons at low temperatures, (3) catalysts for selective catalytic reduction of NOx, (4) oxygen storage materials and three’way catalysts for gasoline exhaust purification, and (5) metallic/ceramic supports and coating technologies. More than 30 projects have been carried out. Now he is one of the Vice Directors of Key Laboratory of Advanced Materials sponsored by the Education Ministry of China and the Secretary of Professional Committee of Catalysis, the Chinese Society of Rare Earths. More than 90 SCI papers and 8 books have been published. 12 invention patents of China and 1 invention patent of Australia have been granted. Wy was awarded the Second Class of National Scientific and Technological Progress, in 2009.
