Wu discusses his research at a poster presentationBen Wu, who received bachelor's degrees in chemical engineering and mathematics in May, was one of three students selected to present their research at the 2016 Beckman Symposium in August.

Wu worked with Oliver Monti, an associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, to explore how charge transport in molecules can be tailored and made efficient.

"I wanted to tackle issue of renewable energy. Chemical engineering, with its emphasis on energy transfer and reactor design, seemed like the best choice to help me reach this goal," he said.
