Prof. Laura Na Liu received her Ph. D in Physics at University of Stuttgart. She then worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley and as a Texas Instruments visiting professor at Rice University, respectively. Before she became a professor at the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics at University of Heidelberg in 2015, she had worked as an independent group leader at the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.
Her research interest is multi-disciplinary. She works at the interface between nano-photonics, biology, and chemistry. Her group will focus on developing sophisticated and smart optical nano-systems for answering structural biology questions as well as catalytic chemistry questions in local environments.
The physics department welcomes back Prof. Na Liu at Stuttgart and is looking forward to continuing the collaboration with her.
