    Personal profile


    Dr. Liang Wu is an Assistant Professor working at the Institute for Clean Growth and Future Mobility at Coventry University. He obtained his first degree from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China in 2011 and then in 2012 a MSc degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Loughborough University. In 2013 he went on to obtain a Ph.D. in Electrochemistry from Loughborough University before joining Coventry Univerisity in 2016. Liang has worked at Coventry University on an EU project regarding the improvement of electroplated Lead-free coatings and an Innovate UK project to develop a novel production process for renewable hydrogen from animal and human waste. He is the Lead/co-author of papers published in well-regarded industry and professional journals and presenter at national and international research conferences.

    Green hydrogen production; Water electrolysis; Ammonia electrolysis; Electrochmistry; Electrochemical deposition; Surface Engineering; Surface Modification of Materials; Materials Characterisation; Microscopy Techniques;

    Vision Statement

    Hydrogen is seen as the perfect environmentally friendly fuel of the future. It can be used in fuel cells to generate electricity and greatly reduces pollution and CO2 emissions. Hydrogen energy technologies are increasingly important and leading to a technological revolution which particularly benefits the transport sector. My vision is to pursue my research in getting an in-depth understanding of the challenges in producing hydrogen from renewable sources and developing a safer and cost-effective process for hydrogen production using an electrochemical method.
