Biography

Dr. Chunhua Liu received his B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in automatic control from Beijing Institute of Technology, China, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. He received his Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from The University of Hong Kong in 2009. From Mar. 2010 to Aug. 2013, he served as Postdoctoral Fellow at Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Hong Kong. From Sep. 2013 to Aug. 2014, he served as Assistant Professor, and then in 2015 as Honorary Assistant Professor also at The University of Hong Kong.

Dr. Liu joined the School in CityU as Assistant Professor in Aug 2015. His research interest covers the Electrical Energy and Power Technologies for smart energy conversion, integration, distribution, and utilization, including electric motors and drives, electric generators; electric vehicle technologies, vehicle-to-home, vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-grid; smart grid & microgrid technologies; sustainable & renewable energy systems; wireless power transfer technologies, and smart devices for robotics. He is all-round in electrical and electronic engineering and hence accomplished over 30 projects in the abovementioned areas and corresponding abundant publication record.

Dr. Liu is Senior Member of the IEEE, Member of IEEE Societies of IES, PES, IAS & RAS, and serves as Reviewer for over 30 international journals. He serves as Associate Editor of IET – Renewable Power Generation, and Editorial Board Member of Wireless Power Transfer from Cambridge Journals, etc.. He has published over 70 leading papers in journals and over 30 papers in conferences in 2015. His Google-Scholar Citations are over 1800 in June 2015.

Dr. Liu has been invited by Proceeding of the IEEE for contributing two long papers on vehicle-to-grid in 2013 and advanced electric devices for microgrids in 2015, respectively. Furthermore, he is now preparing one book with topic of Smart Energy for Wiley-IEEE Press and has published one book chapter for Nova Science. His teaching and research philosophy follows the terms of APCP (Active – Positive – Creative – Productive).
