Dr Johan Liu graduated with a master and a Ph.D. degree in materials science from the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. Before joining Chalmers University of Technology, he served in various positions at the Swedish Institute for Production Engineering Research (IVF) as project manager, group leader and division manager. He is currently full professor in electronics production and head of Bio Nano Systems Laboratory, Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience in Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. He is also director of SMIT Center both at Chalmers University of Technology and Shanghai University, China (A joint center between Sweden and China).
As a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences and a fellow of IEEE, he has published over 400 papers in journals, proceedings and book chapters with a Hirsch index of 21 and with an citation of 1450 times, He has 35 patents accepted or filed and has given over 45 key note/invited talks during the last 25 years. During the last five years, he has published 12 papers with impact factor over 3,5 (3 of them over 10). He has also received many awards including IEEE Exceptional Technical Achievement Award, IEEE CPMT Transaction Best paper Award in “Advanced Packaging”. His research field covers mainly nanopackaging materials and process for electronics and microsystems including 3D CNT TSV technology, CNT/graphene assisted cooling technology, graphene heat spreader, CNT Bumping, high temperature stable conductive adhesives, nano-soldering, nano thermal interface materials and nanoscaffolds for biomedical applications.
