Electrochemistry group at Wayne State

Research in the Luo group is focused on exploring new frontiers in electrocatalytic and electroanalytical sciences. Key challenges we aim to address include selective electroreduction of carbon dioxide (CO2), single nanoparticle electrochemistry, and low cost point-of-care diagnostics.

We are now looking for highly motivated graduate and undergraduate students! Please contact Professor Luo at long.luo@wayne.edu if you are interested.

We are now looking for a postdoc with the expertise in catalysis and electrocatalysis! Please send your CV to Prof. Luo at long.luo@wayne.edu if you are interested.
