Dr. Lifeng Liu

International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, Portugal

Lifeng Liu (Researcher ID: A-2522-2012, Orcid ID: 0000-0003-2732-7399) is currently Staffer Researcher (tenured) and Research Group Leader at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL). He obtained his B. S. degree in Applied Physics from Beijing Jiaotong University (2001), and both his MS (2004) and PhD (2007) degrees in Condensed Matter Physics from the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOP-CAS). He joined Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics – Halle (MPI-Halle), Germany in 2007, first working as a postdoctoral researcher and then as a staff scientist. He started his independent research career in 2008 and became the head of group “Porous Alumina” in 2009. In 2011, he moved to INL and set up a research group there. Lifeng Liu has been actively working on nanomaterials and nanostructures since 2002, with particular emphases on fabrication and characterization of complex nanostructures, nanoscale solid-state reactions, ferroelectric nanostructures and nano-electrocatalysts. His present interest mainly focuses on nanomaterials for electrochemical energy storage and conversion. So far, he has been granted 2 PCT patents and authored/coauthored 130+ peer-reviewed papers in major international journals, which have been collectively cited 7000+ times (Google Scholar, as of Jan. 2019). In addition, Lifeng Liu has delivered about 50 oral presentations at different international conferences/workshops/universities. Honors and awards he was granted recently include: FCT Investigator Grant 2014, Young Researcher Award 2015 by the Portuguese Electrochemical Society, and the Scientist Medal by the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM) 2018.​
