About Dr. Lichen Liu

Lichen is currently an assistant professor in Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University. He obtained his B.S. of Chemistry from Nanjing University in 2012, and M.S. (2014) as well as Ph.D. (2018) of Sustainable Chemistry from Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) with Prof. Avelino Corma. After working with Prof. Avelino Corma in Instituto de Tecnología Química (CSIC-UPV) in Valencia (Spain) as a postdoctoral researcher (2018-2020), he joined Tsinghua University in January, 2021.

He began his adventure with heterogeneous catalysis since his undergraduate period in Nanjing University, where he worked in Prof. Lin Dong’s group on synthesis and catalytic applications of metal oxides. After joining Prof. Corma’s group in ITQ since 2013, His research is switched to the preparation and catalytic applications of heterogeneous metal catalysts as well as nanoporous materials such as zeolites and metal-organic frameworks.

He has published >50 peer-reviewed papers with >5,000 citations (according to Google Scholar) and one of his patents has been licensed to industry.
