Assistant Professor Liangbing Hu (MSE/NanoCenter/UMERC).

 

University of Maryland assistant professor Liangbing Hu has been named a “Campus Star” by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The distinction is granted to society members who have demonstrated excellence in engineering education and research. Over the next several months, Campus Stars will be profiled on the ASEE web site, its social media outlets, and in its flagship publication, Prism. The program is part of the ASAEE’s efforts to raise awareness of the importance and impact of engineering education.

“I try to be innovative and push…for ‘surprise’ ideas, and linking my fundamental research to practical applications,” Hu says in his profile on the ASEE web site. “I encourage [my students] to constantly think about how to come up with great ideas, design experiments, and publish….I encourage them to constantly investigate the fundamentals and think about how to apply them.” 

Hu, a member of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Maryland NanoCenter, and University of Maryland Energy Research Center, studies and develops nanomaterials for use in energy storage systems and flexible electronics. His research group has received attention for its “battery made of wood,” which was featured on National Public Radio; and for its transparent nanopaper, which could be used in printed and flexible electronics, sensors and organic solar cells. In addition to his growing roster of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and visiting professors, Hu has welcomed many undergraduate and high school students into his group, giving them early hands-on opportunities in energy research. When not in the lab, Hu teaches Materials for Energy I and II at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
