Dr. Lifeng Liu
Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, Portugal
Keynote Speaker

Lifeng Liu (Researcher ID: A-2522-2012, Orcid ID: 0000-0003-2732-7399) received his Bachelor degree in Applied Physics from Beijing Jiaotong University (2001), and both his Master (2004) and PhD (2007) degrees in Condensed Matter Physics from the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He joined Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics (MPI-Halle) in 2007, first working as a postdoctoral researcher and then as a staff scientist, under the supervision of the late Prof. Ulrich Goesele. He started his independent research career in 2008 and became a Group Leader in 2009 at MPI-Halle. In 2011, he moved to the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) and set up a research group there, where his research now focuses on the development of new materials for use in electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices including electrolyzers, rechargeable batteries, supercapacitors, and photoelectrochemical cells. Lifeng Liu has been actively working on nanomaterials and nanostructures since 2002, and has published 160+ scientific papers in international peer-reviewed journals by far. He received several awards and honors such as the FCT Investigator Grant 2014, Young Researcher Prize of the Portuguese Electrochemical Society 2015, and the Emerging Investigator 2019 by the RSC journal “Chemical Communications”. He is now the Editorial Board Members of Advances in Nano Research and Materials Today Energy.

Topic of Keynote: Towards Green Hydrogen Production: Development Efficient, Durable and Cost-Effetive Catalysts
