Advanced Materials Science and Engineering

Yuanyue Liu Group

Yuanyue Liu is developing and apply atomistic modelling methods to understand, design and discover materials for electronics and energy applications. The current focuses are charge transport, electrochemistry, and 2D materials. Yuanyue Liu received B.S. degree from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2008, and Ph.D. from Rice University in 2014. He did postdoc studies at National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and California Institute of Technology, and then joined UT in Fall 2017.
