Wen Hu joined the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) in 2014 and became a beamline scientist of Coherent Soft X-ray Scattering (CSX) beamline in 2016. Currently, she is a beamline scientist for the Soft X-ray Nanoprobe (SXN) beamline 29-ID-1 and NanoARPES and NAnoRIXS (ARI) beamline 29-ID-2, focusing on the design and development of nanoISM endstation and its related science programs. Wen has diverse scientific interests, from the characterization of functional materials to the development of state-of-the-art X-ray techniques and instrumentation.
