Judy Z. Wu is a distinguished Professor of physics at the University of Kansas and directs the NSF EPSCoR Kansas Center for Solar Energy Research. She received her Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Houston in 1993 and joined the faculty of the Physics department at the University of Kansas shortly afterwards. Her Thin Film and Nanoscience group in KU (University of Kansas) has been actively working at the interface between nanoscience and material science/physics. Z. Wu is specialized in synthesizing nanostructured materials, fabricating nanoscale devices, and characterizing physical properties at microscopic scales. She has authored/coauthored more than 140 scientific publications, 3 book chapters, and 7 US patents (5 awarded and 1 pending) and has given more than 90 invited/plenary lectures at national/international conferences and workshops. Wu was elected to the Board of Directors for Applied Superconductivity Conference in 2002 and has served/chaired a technical committee for many years. She has been cochairing the Material Task Force on US Senator Pat Roberts’ advisory committee for Science, Technology, and Future of Kansas since 1999. She has served on many review panels for DOE, NSF, and DOD research programs and has organized/chaired numerous symposia/technical sessions for various national and international conferences, including American Physical Society, Material Research Society, American Ceramic Society, and Applied Superconductivity Conference.
