Hao Liu

Assistant Professor



Hao Liu's research interests broadly lie in the area of energy storage and conversion. Their goal is to understand the mechanisms that underlie the function and failure of materials for energy applications. This requires characterizing the structure-function/property relationship of materials. In their group, they employ a range of experimental techniques, such as X-ray scattering and synchrotron radiation, to study the chemical and physical processes that occur during the operation of, for example, batteries.

Research Interests

  • Solid-state and materials chemistry
  • Structure-function relationship of materials for energy storage and conversion
  • In-situ X-ray scattering studies of electrode materials for batteries


  • 2022, NSF CAREER Award
