About YHL

Dr. Yi-Hung Liu earned his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Chemical Engineering at Kyoto University (2012).

During the PhD course, he mainly focuses on the research of powder generation and handling.

Before being a PhD researcher, he has received BS and MS degrees from the Department of Chemical Engineering at National Taiwan University(NTU).  

After graduating from Kyoto University, he once worked at Toshiba as an engineer and at National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) as a postdoctoral researcher, having industrial and academic experience. He joined National University of Tainan in 2015, starting his academic career as an assistant professor and, in 2018, he transferred to National Central University with his research and teaching enthusiasm.  

His research interests include lithium/sodium ion batteries, hydrogen production, and wastewater treatment.
