Caltech C
2006 Spring

Fu Yu

 Public Relation Director,Treasurer

Hi, my name is Fu Yu. I am a first year graduate student in Electrical Engineering.

I did my Bachelor degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. During my undergraduate years, I was the committee member of Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) for two years. I enjoyed being a committee member and serving the Chinese community as a whole. Therefore, I would like to run for CaltechC committee.

Personally, I am an optimistic person, who is outgoing and friendly. I hope I could make lots of friends during my stay at Caltech.

I have a diverse interest, like music, movie, pool, swimming, and travel. And I like to try out different new things.

Thank you for your attention and your support.

Hu Xile

   Activity Director

Academic Background:

I was born in 1978 in Putian, a small city in the central coastal area of the Fujian province of mainland China.  In 1996, I went to Beijing to receive my college education.  I studied chemistry in the College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering of Peking University and received my Bachelor of Science degree in June 2000.  As an undergraduate research assistant, I worked on the intercalation chemistry of tungsten bronze and the hydrothermal synthesis of metallo-borophosphates in the laboratory of Prof. Jianhua Lin.

In the fall of 2000, I came to the United States and began my doctoral studies under the guidance of Prof. Karsten Meyer at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry of the University of California, San Diego.  My research focused on the development of novel tripodal N-heterocyclic carbene ligands for small molecule activation. 

After receiving my Doctor of Philosophy degree in Inorganic Chemistry in December 2004, I moved to California Institute of Technology where I am now a postdoctoral scholar in the laboratories of chemistry professors Nathan S. Lewis and Jonas C. Peters .  My current research is centered on the development of molecular hydrogen evolving catalysts for sun-light driven water splitting reactions.    

Personal Information:

I am a easy-going down-to-earth guy. I spend most of my free time hanging out with friends, eating out, and watching movies. I also like to go to the beach, visit museums, and occasionally, go shopping (when my wallet is not empty).I am a sports fan, but only on watching. My Zodiac sign is Virgo, and I like to talk about astrology. I have a blog at It doesn't have too many entries yet, but I am working on it.

Yeo Yeow Chuan

   Vice President

my name is Yaoquan and I am a first year graduate student in the Electrical Engineering Department.

I was born in Singapore and was awarded a Government scholarship in year 2000 to pursue my undergraduate education in France.  I've spent a total of 5 years in Europe, notably in Paris where I spent 2 years in my engineering school E.S.I.E.E (Ecole Superieure d'Ingenieurs en Electronique et Electrotechnique ).

I have a great passion for life, and I enjoy meeting new people, making new friends and discovering the finer aspects of life.  To me, everyone has a story to tell, and nothing exhilarates me more than discovering a common thread to relate with people, listening to them and sharing our personal perspectives towards life.

I am indeed honored to be part of the CaltechC Committee and I look forward to continued support from all of you guys.  I will strive to the best of my abilities to contribute to the welfare of the members and make CaltechC a warm and homely organization for everyone.

PS: Also feel free to contact me if you are interested in French, guitar, watching NBA or travelling!
