Peijun Guo

Assistant Professor of Chemical and Environmental Engineering

Peijun Guo joins Yale University’s Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering as an Assistant Professor in January 2020. His research focuses on the design and fabrication of nanostructured materials with enhanced light-matter interactions for applications in renewable energy, optoelectronics, and information science. He specializes in ultrafast laser spectroscopy covering the visible, infrared, and terahertz range to research the optical properties and excited-state carrier and lattice dynamics of emerging hybrid semiconductors and quantum materials. Professor Guo has authored and coauthored more than 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and has been recognized with the Materials Research Society Graduate Student Gold Award and the SPIE Education Scholarship, among others. Prior to coming to Yale, he was an Enrico Fermi Named Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory. He received his B.E. from Tsinghua University and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Northwestern University.
