Introducing Wei-min Wu...
I was born in Chengdu, a beautiful city in soutwest China. After working at a construction company, I attended Haribin Civil and Architectural Institute to study engineering and worked in that field for five years. At that point, I decided to enroll at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China for graduate study in environmental engineering. After receiving a Masters degree there in 1984, I moved to the United States and in 1991 received a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Michigan State University. I worked at Michigan Biotechnology Institute (MBI) for 10 years before joining Stanford University as a Senior Research Engineer in February 2001.
My working experience is in applied research and process development, and design, start-up, operation and troubleshooting of laboratory, pilot- and full-scale biological waste treatment systems, especially anaerobic systems. I also enjoy environmental microbiological research, especially the isolation and characterization of anaerobic microorganisms. My recent research work includes anaerobic dechlorination of PCP, PCE, TCE and PCBs and bioremediation of a uranium contaminated site at Oak Ridge, TN.
