Associate Professor (Research) School of Environmental Science and Engineering Research Group
Dr. Liu received his bachelor's degree from Shandong University (China) in 2009. He got his master's degree and Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) in 2010 and 2015, respectively. He worked as a research assistant and later a postdoctoral researcher in Singapore Membrane Technology Centre (SMTC) since 2014 and has been working in the field of membrane technology for almost 10 years. He joined Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech, China) in 2018 and currently serves as a research associate professor in SUSTech.
His research focuses on 1) novel membrane materials and fabrication methods, 2) novel techniques for membrane fouling and characterization, 3) applications of nanomaterials in membrane fabrication, 4) membrane module design and optimization and 5) membrane separation processes for desalination and water reuse.
His work has yielded 27 peer-reviewed papers (citation: 816, h-index: 15) and 7 patent applications (2 approved). He is the Co-PI of several major research projects (total amount: ~40 M RMB) and the reviewer of several high-impact international journals including J. Membrane Sci., Water Res., Environ. Sci. Technol., Desalination, Environ. Res., J. Environ. Chem. Eng., etc. He serves as a guest editor of the special issue of Membranes. He is also a member of MEMSIS (Membrane Society in Singapore) and NAMS (North American Membrane Society).
