Wen was born in Beijing and currently a Ph.D. student at Georgia Institute of Technology. Previously he studied at Arizona State University for PhD from 2007 to 2009 and then transferred to GT in 2009. He earned BS degree from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in 2004 and MS degree with honor from Tongji University (Shanghai, China) in 2007. His academic interests lay on the interdisciplinary research on nano-scale material (biotic/abiotic) characterization with ultramicroscopies (AFM/SEM/TEM), interfacial, and biophysical phenomena in aquatic environments. The over-arching goals are to bridge the knowledge gap on the connections between the nanoscale properties of nanomaterials and their environmental behaviors as well as potential biological effects.

Wei’s research focuses on carbon capture using microalgae. Due to the global warming issue and diminishing world oil reserves, algae-based biofuel shows a great potential as feedstock for renewable energy production. His goal is efficiently to utilize microalgae to sequester carbon dioxide from flue gas coupled with fuel production.
