    Biography

    Dr. Liang Liu is a research fellow under the supervision of Prof. Sandra Kentish. He worked ~5 years as a professional commissioning engineer in China Nuclear Power Engineering Co. before he started his PhD at the University of Queensland in 2012. He is working on an ARC DP project focusing on water transport behaviors in glassy polymer membranes.
