Liao, Jianhui is an associate professor in the Department of Electronics, School of EECS. He obtained his B.Sc. from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 1999, and Ph.D. from Southeast University in 2004, respectively. Then he joined in the group of Prof. Christian Sch?nenberger at Basel University in Switzerland as a post doctor until the end of 2008. His research interests include molecular electronics, nano-electronics, and charge transport in nanostructures.

Dr. Liao has published more than 30 research papers, and most of them were published in top journals, such as Nano Lett., Adv. Mater., Appl. Phys. Lett., Small. Some selected publications are in the following list.
