Research Interests: The Xu laboratory uses advanced microscopy and spectroscopy to study chemical reactions on surfaces and interfaces at an atomic level. The research uses a combination of in situ and ex situ methods to understand and study low temperature heterogeneous reactions, structure-activity relationships, and engineering nanostructures, on metal and metal oxide surfaces.
