Wang, Xiaoxue

Biography

Dr. Xiaoxue Wang received her Ph.D. degree in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2018 with a minor in Electrical Engineering, and her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2012. Under the guidance of Professor Karen Gleason, she focused on the structure-property engineering and device fabrication of conjugated polymers using Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) during her PhD study. After graduation, Dr. Wang joined the group of Professor Klavs Jensen to accelerate the in silico synthesis planning for drug-like molecules using reinforcement learning as a postdoctoral associate at MIT.

Dr. Wang joined the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Ohio State University (OSU) as a tenure-track assistant professor in September 2019. During her research career, she was acknowledged by awards such as Materials Research Society (MRS) graduate student award and MIT Robert T. Haslam Fellowship. She has filed 2 patents and published 1 book chapter and 19 articles on peer reviewed journals including Science Advances, Advanced Materials and Nature.

Dr. Wang’s research interests mainly focus on the structure-property engineering of polymers synthesized by Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) method, the electronic device fabrication based on CVD polymers, and applying machine learning in materials development.
