Yang Liu specialises in Low-Dimensional Mesoporous Carbon Based Nanostructures for High Performance energy storage devices

Electrical energy storage is one of the most critical needs in 21st century. Currently, applications that depend on electrical energy storage include portable electronics, electric vehicles, and devices for renewable energy storage from solar and wind. The key component of electrical energy storage device is electrode materials. Yang Liu's research is focused on the rationally design of mesoporous carbon based high performance electrode materials.

From May to November in 2012, Yang Liu worked at the Shanghai Huali Microelectronics Corporation as a Process Engineer, governing the process of ion implantation. From 2012 to 2013, Yang worked at Shanghai Normal University as a Research Assistant, guiding students and applying for the National Natural Science Foundation of China.

Yang Liu is currently doing his PhD under the supervision of Professor Chengzhong (Michael) Yu.
