1. Introduction to the team leaders

Prof. Changqing Liu received his Ph.D. degree in Engineering Design and Manufacturing from the University of Hull in 1998. From 1997 to 2000, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Interdisciplinary Research Centre for High Performance Materials, University of Birmingham, UK. From 2000 to 2023, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher, lecturer, senior lecturer and professor in the School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering of Loughborough University, UK. Since October 2023, he took up a professorship and became a doctoral supervisor at the School of Mechanical Science and Engineering, HUST. He has been extensively engaged in innovative research on advanced electronic materials and manufacturing technologies, including IC device heterogeneous integration, interconnection, packaging, interfacial characteristics and bonding mechanisms and reliability analysis; power electronics and Wide-band Gap (WBG) semiconductor integration and packaging; bioelectronics and intelligent wearable and implantable electronics. He has published more than 300 academic articles in international journals such as Materials & Design, Acta Materialia, Carbohydrate Polymers. He collaborates and exchanges with over 30 universities and research institutions around the world, including Imperial College London, King's College London, University of Nottingham, University of Manchester, Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, City University of Hong Kong, etc., and his research work have attracted an extensive attention and recognition from his international peers, relevant organisations and industries.
