    Professor, Dept. of Chemistry, UC Davis, USA

    Gang-yu Liu received her Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1992, and completed her postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley in 1994 as a Miller Research Fellowship. She has received several prestigious awards, including an ACS Fellow in 2010, AAAS Fellow in 2007, Sloan Faculty Recognition Award in 2007, NSF-CAREER Award (1997), Arnold and Mable Beckman Young Investigator Award (1996-1998), and the Camille and Henry Dreyfus New Faculty Award (1994-1999). She has been a senior editor for the J. Phys. Chem. since 2005. She serves on editorial advisory boards for ACS Nano, (2007-Present) and the Annual Rev. of Phys. Chem. (2010-present). Liu’s overall research objectives focus on the development of advanced nanotechnology and exploration of its applications in materials science and biomedicine. One important aspect of the research is the design and engineering nanostructures which position reaction sites on surfaces with high precision. The exquisite precision attainable by the nanolithographic methods they have developed allows complex multivalent interactions such as surface reactions and bio-recognition to be controlled by varying the separation and local environment of the binding sites.
