Dr. Liangbing Hu obtained his B.S. in Physics from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2002, where he worked on colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) materials. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from UCLA in 2007 on nanoelectronics with carbon nanotubes. He co-funded Unidym Inc in 2006 and continued working there until 2009 as a scientist, where he led the effort on roll-to-roll coating and devices integrations of transparent carbon nanotube films. Completed his postdoc in Stanford MSE from 2009-2011 where he worked on electrochemical energy storages. He joined University of Maryland College Park in 2011 as an Assistant Professor at the MSE and Energy Research Center where he is leading a group focusing on nanomaterials and emerging devices.
His research interests include: Nanomaterials and nanostructures; energy storage: battery, supercapacitors for various applications; energy conversion: solar cells, solar fuel, transparent electrode, light-trapping; printed electronics including nano-ink, roll-to-roll printing, flexible electronics (display, touch screen, energy), and wearable devices.
