Lu Wei

Assistant Professor of Chemistry

B.S., Nanjing University, 2010; Ph.D. Columbia University, 2015; Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Caltech 2018-.
Research Areas: Chemistry

Research Interests

Optical spectroscopy and microscopy, Biophysics, Bio-imaging, Chemical probe development.

Research in the Wei group lies at the interface of optical spectroscopy, chemical biology and life science. We develop cutting-edge optical spectroscopy and microscopy, in combination with new advances in chemical biology. We apply these new schemes to understand the dynamical physical and chemical processes in living systems.
