Chunhua Liu received his B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in automatic control from Beijing Institute of Technology, China, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. He received his Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Hong Kong in 2009. From Mar. 2010 to Aug. 2013, he served as Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Hong Kong.

Dr. Liu joined the Department as Assistant Professor in Sep. 2013. He is currently holder of Honorary Assistant Professor at the Department. His research interest covers the Electrical Energy and Power Technologies for energy conversion, integration and distribution, including sustainable energy systems; electric vehicle technologies, vehicle-to-home, vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-grid; electric motors and drives, electric generators; smart grid and microgrid technologies; wireless power transfer technologies, and smart devices for robotics. He is all-round in electrical and electronic engineering and hence accomplished over 30 projects in the abovementioned areas and corresponding abundant publication record.

Dr. Liu is Senior Member of the IEEE, Member of IEEE Societies of IES, PES, IAS & RAS, and serves as Reviewer for over 20 international journals. He serves as Associate Editor of IET – Renewable Power Generation, and Editorial Board Member of Wireless Power Transfer from Cambridge Journals, etc.. He has published over 60 leading papers in journals and over 30 papers in conferences in 2014. His Google-Scholar Citations are over 1600 in 2014.

Dr. Liu has been invited by Proceeding of IEEE for contributing two long papers on vehicle-to-grid in 2013 and advancing electric devices for microgrids in 2015, respectively. Furthermore, he is now preparing one book for Wiley-IEEE Press and one book chapter for Nova Science. His teaching and research philosophy follows the terms of APCP (Active – Positive – Creative – Productive).
