Tel: 86-10-62798187




Dr. Prof. Yang Liu received his B. S. degree from Huazhong University of Sciences and Technology in 2001, and Ph. D. from Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2006. Subsequently, He worked as a post-doctoral in University of California at Riverside and Oakland University until August 2009. In November 2009, he joined the Chemistry Department in Tsinghua University and now serves as a tenured Associate Professor. Dr. Liu’s research interests are focused on nanostructured electrochemical interface for biological activity analysis, and the molecules and cellular tracking of glycosylation. He published over 100 papers with 5000 cited times.
