Join us for “Developing Designer Electrolyte Materials for Energy Storage” a keynote presentation by Dr. Tianbiao Leo Liu , College of Engineering, Chemical & Biomedical Engineering, MizzouForward faculty candidate.  Dr. Liu will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.

Dr. Tianbiao Leo Liu received his PhD from Texas A&M University in 2009. He served as a staff scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory from 2013 to 2015 and is currently an associate professor of chemistry and materials science at Utah State University. His research focuses on energy and green chemical processes, including electrochemical energy storage, separation, electrocatalysis, and environmentally benign chemical transformations. Dr. Liu’s research and education accomplishments have been recognized by multiple academic awards and honors, including the 2015 ACS Catalysis Lectureship co-recipient, and 2017 Utah Energy Triangle Faculty Award, the 2018 Chemical Communications Emerging Investigator, 2017-2019 Scialog Fellow on Advanced Energy Storage selected by Research Corporation for Science Advancement and Sloan Foundation, 2019 NSF Career Award, 2019 Utah Innovation Award Finalist (runner-up) on Clean Energy, 2020-2021 Scialog Fellow on Negative Emission Sciences selected by Research Corporation on Science Advancement, and Sloan Foundation, and 2021 Utah ACS Outstanding Graduate Educator Award. You can visit his website for more details,


Dr. Liu’s group research interests broadly cover energy and catalysis sciences for sustainable energy and chemical conversions (please reference their group website:  Their overarching goal is to develop new materials and catalysts to enable unprecedented performance in energy storage and catalytic processes while developing new fundamental knowledge. Their research could lead to the development of new technologies to alleviate the global reliance on fossil fuels and enhance the sustainable development of our society. Their research projects are highly integrated with educational activities including research training for graduate students, undergraduate students, and high school students, and lab courses for undergraduate students.
