About

Profile

Yang Liu received her PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2011. She worked as a Research Fellow at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (2011-2013), and Curtin University, Australia (2013-2016). From 2016-2018, she held a position as a Chemist and Research Officer at ChemCentre, Western Australian Government. In March 2018, she joined James Cook University as a Lecturer in Analytical Chemistry.

Dr Liu’s research interests are primarily in the exploration of innovative analytical technologies based on electrochemical reactions, including application of nanomaterials for label-free sensor devices and study of biomedical molecules at liquid-liquid (or oil-water) interfaces. The current area of interest is working towards applying advanced senising technologies for tropical environmental studies.

Research Opportunities

Currently, we are looking for motivated PhD students to join us.

If you are an Australian/New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident, you might want to consider applying for a Domestic Prestige Research Training Program Scholarship.  

If you are an international student, you might want to consider applying for an International Research Training Program Scholarship

If you are a Chinese citizen or permanent resident and are interested in applying for a PhD or visiting scholarship from China Scholarship Council, please contact Yang to discuss an appropriate program.

If you already have a scholarship from your country and are looking to obtain your PhD degree in Australia (or just spend some months in our group as part of your studies), please contact Yang directly.
