Ph.D. Southwest University


Dr. Minqiang Wang received his PhD in Clean Energy Science from Southwest University in Jun 2019. He got the Chinese National Scholarship to support his visiting student study in Medical Engineering in Carlifornia Institute of Technology (Caltech. USA) from Aug.2018 to Aug.2019. He has won the China National Scholarship twice during the PhD studying. His doctoral thesis entitled "Design and Performance of Transition Metal-based Hydrogen Evolution Catalysts" was supervised by Prof. Shu-Juan Bao won the "2020 Chongqing Excellent Doctoral Thesis". Then he joined Wei Gao's group in Medical Engineering as a post-doctoral research fellow in Caltech. He has published over 50 SCI papers as co-auther in including "Nat. biotech., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Matter., Energy Storage Materials. etc." His Google citations are 2080 and H-index is 27 until 03/20/2021. He is currently a research assistant professor at CenBRAIN and School of Engineering in Westlake University.

Research Interests

Dr. Minqiang Wang works many years on fabricating and characterizing various Electrocatalytic and Biocatalytic nano-materials. In addition, he has many experiences on fabricating flexible and wearable medical electronic devices. He is currently focusing on flexible and wearable electronic devices and digital medical monitoring, construction of biological materials and their application in biological analysis. He is trying to develop more analytical methods that can achieve real-time monitoring in sweat, and develop more efficient sweat sampling methods to resolve sweat evaporation, contamination from skin.
