Dr. Gu received the Bachelor’s degree from the University of British Columbia, Canada in 2008, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of California, San Diego in 2014, both in Electrical Engineering. Prior to joining NCSU, she was an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas from 2016 to 2021. Her research activities include the experimental realization of quantum-inspired nanophotonic semiconductor light sources using emerging materials or novel cavity configurations, active and topological hyperbolic metamaterials, and perovskite optoelectronics. She is the author of book “Semiconductor Nanolasers” by Cambridge University Press, published in 2017.
Dr. Gu’s research lies at the intersection of electrical engineering, physics and materials sciences. Starting in January 2022, she will hold a joint appointment of ECE and Physics, and will be a member of the Chancellor's Faculty Excellence Cluster in Carbon Electronics.
Dr. Gu's group at NCSU is recruiting PhD students and Postdocs (Recruitment Poster).
