Dr. Xiaoyu Wang

Short Bio

Dr. Xiaoyu Wang is a Postdoctoral Research Associate working in Prof. Edward Maginn’s group at Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department, University of Notre Dame. He joined Notre Dame in 2020 after receiving his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago, IL) under the supervision of Prof. Sohail Murad and Prof. Cynthia J. Jameson. His Ph.D. research works have been focusing on using molecular dynamics simulations to investigate various separation processes of interests. He received a B.S. in Chemistry from Sichuan University (Chengdu, China). Currently, his research interests include (1) investigating thermophysical properties of deep eutectic solvents; (2) developing a classical molecular model and using machine-learning force field to simulate zeolite synthesis with organic structure-directing agents; (3) understanding structural, dynamic, and electrical properties of new types of ionic liquids which consists of lithium and some asymmetric anions.
