Juejun (JJ) Hu
Juejun (JJ) Hu will join the faculty in January 2015 as an assistant professor and as the Merton C. Flemings Career Development Professorship of Materials Science and Engineering. He comes to us from the University of Delaware, where he was a tenure-track assistant professor. Prior to that, he was a post-doc in MIT’s Microphotonics Center. As the Francis Alison Young Professor, Juejun initiated and led research projects involving environmental monitoring, renewable energy, biological sensing, and optical communications. He received the 2013 Gerard J. Mangone Young Scholars Award, which recognizes promising and accomplished young faculty and is the University of Delaware’s highest faculty honor. His research is in three main thrust areas: substrate-blind multifunctional photonic integration; mid-infrared integrated photonics; and 3-D photonic integrated circuits. Juejun’sgroup has applied these photonic technologies to address emerging application needs in environmental monitoring, renewable energy harvesting, communications, and biotechnology. He holds the B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Tsinghua University, and the Ph.D from MIT DMSE.
