Shaomin Liu is currently working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Curtin University since 2008. He received his Ph.D. degree from the National University of Singapore in 2002. He was a Post Doctorate Scholar at California Institute of Technology from 2002 to 2005. After that, he worked in the University of Queensland as a Research Fellow. Since late 2008, he has joined Curtin University. His research interests includes inorganic membranes for gas separations, membrane reactors for high-temperature reactions, ion-conducting ceramics for solid oxide fuel cells, nanostructured catalysts to improve their catalytic efficiency and biological ceramics for cell immunoisolation. He is particularly interested in developing oxygen ion-conducting ceramic hollow membrane technology for oxygen production to replace the conventional energy-intensive cryogenic method to improve the viabilities of these large-scale clean-energy technologies. Professor Liu published over 140 manuscripts, including 120 SCI-indexed journals papers, and a patent in perovskite membrane. He has been invited as a keynote/plenary lecturer to more than 10 conferences and by many universities around the world.
