Dr. Liping Wang

Research Professor Academy for Advanced Interdisciplinary Sciences

Dr. Liping Wang is currently a Research Professor in the Academy for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies (AAIS) at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). He received his B.S. in Geochemistry from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 1990 and his Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Michigan in 1999. Dr. Wang then joined the Mineral Physics Institute (MPI) of the Stony Brook University (SBU), first as a post-doctoral scholar, then a Research Scientist and a Senior Research Scientist from 1999 to 2010, during which he served as the designated scientist for the multi-anvil high-pressure beamline at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) of the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). Dr. Wang was an Associate Research Professor in the High Pressure Science and Engineering Center (HiPSEC) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) (2011-2018). He established the Multi-anvil High-Pressure Laboratory for the research center.

Research

Dr. Wang's research has focused on the development and application of multi-anvil press-based techniques in conjunction with synchrotron radiations for studying materials properties under extreme conditions. His research efforts are multi-faceted and highly interdisciplinary, covering physics, chemistry, material science, and geosciences. Specific interests include phase equilibria, thermal equations of state, acoustic velocities and elasticity, deformation, strength and thermal mechanics, phase transition and reaction kinetics, diffusion, order-disorder, and water storage in anhydrous minerals. His recent adventures include design and in situ synthesis and characterization of novel materials, including nano, lithium-ion battery, photocatalytic and superhard materials.
