Si Wu is a full professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), Hefei, China. He obtained the bachelor’s degree in polymer science in 2005 at USTC. He was supported by the joint doctoral promotion programme working on photoresponsive polymers at USTC and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPIP), Mainz, Germany. After he received his PhD in 2010, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at MPIP. He was promoted to a group leader at MPIP in 2012. From 2012 to 2018, he was heading a research group focusing on photoresponsive polymers at MPIP (here ). In 2018, he joined USTC as a full professor and started a new research group.

Si Wu is leading a very active research group that consists of postdocs, PhD students, and mater students. His group synthesize new photoresponsive polymers, characterize them, explore their potential applications in healable materials, reconfigurable materials, reprocessable materials, information storage, biomedicine, solar energy conversion, and light-guided self-assembly. The aim Si Wu’s group is to better understand the relationship between structural changes, dynamics, and performance of photoresponsive polymers. They answer fundamental questions in photoresponsive polymers with the perspective of future applications.
