Personal profile

Biography

Dr Shuying Wu is a Senior Lecturer with the School of Engineering, Macquarie University. She is currently holding the prestigious ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA, commenced in 2017). After completing her PhD at Deakin University, she worked as a Research Associate for six months at Deakin University and then moved to RMIT University to take a role as Research Fellow for three years. She then secured an ARC DECRA fellowship and moved to University of New South Wales in 2017, where she started her research on design and fabrication of flexible, highly stretchable, and sensitive strain/pressure sensors. These sensors show great potential for the application of wearable devices. She is also a recipient of Australia Endeavour Fellowships in 2017 and UNSW-Tsinghua Collaborative Research Fund Seed Grant in 2018.

Her research interests encompass:

  • Design and fabrication of multifunctional polymer nanocomposites;
  • Flexible and stretchable sensors and conductors;
  • Carbon-based nanomaterials;
  • Advanced fiber-reinforced composites;
  • Polymer composites/blends.
