Xueju Wang


Xueju “Sophie” Wang is an adjunct assistant professor with a courtesy appointment in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Missouri (Mizzou). Prior to joining Mizzou, she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University.

Dr. Wang’s research interests are in the area of experimental mechanics, materials, and structures for energy and human health, involving multiple physical processes at the nano- and micrometer length scales. Her research is highly multidisciplinary and lies at the intersection of mechanics, materials, electronics and chemistry. The areas of her current interest include mechanics and materials for multi-physics systems such as in energy storage and conversion, design and manufacturing of 3D stretchable, programmable architectures and electronics, and soft materials and systems.

Dr. Wang’s work has been published in high-profile journals such as Nature Communications and Nano Letters, and has been reported by many press releases including ScienceDaily, Science360, Phys.org, R&D Magazine, and Nanotechnology Now. She is a recipient of Gary L. Cloud Scholarship Award from the Society of Experimental Mechanics.
