Dr. graduated from Cornell University in 2005 and joined MIT as a graduate student the same year. Her research focused on using short-pulsed lasers in integrated optical device fabrication. During her PhD study, she spent several semesters as an overseas scholar in the Physics Department of Milan Politecnical Institute at Milan, Italy. Following obtaining her doctoral degree in 2011, she continued at MIT with a one-year teaching post-doctoral assignment. She joined Saint Joseph's University in 2012.

Dr. Gu's research is focused on the miniaturization of traditional chemical and biochemical functionalities, a technology coined as "Lab On Chip". She is particularly interested in fabrication of devices which combine lightguides and novel fluids to achieve next-generation functionalities.
