Content &Introduction 
Dr. Jingyue (Jimmy) Liu is currently a professor in the Department of Physics and Senior Scholar in the Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University.  Dr. Liu received his bachelor's degree in metal physics in 1982 from the University of Science and Technology Beijing, Beijing, China, and his doctorate degree (under the guidance of Professor John M. Cowley) in 1990 in condensed matter physics from Arizona State University (ASU). After two years as a Postdoctoral Associate, Dr. Liu became a research scientist, funded by the Shell Development Company, in the Center for Solid State Science of ASU.  Young Scientist Award (13th ICEM 1994) and Presidential Award (12th ICEM 1990).
In 1994, Dr. Liu joined Monsanto Corporate Research in St. Louis, Missouri as a Research Specialist and group leader.  After several promotions, Dr. Liu was appointed as a Monsanto Science Fellow in 2000 for outstanding technical achievements.  In 2004, Dr. Liu was appointed as Senior Science Fellow of Monsanto for sustained outstanding contributions to Monsanto's businesses. Among many awards that Dr. Liu received from Monsanto Company for developing proprietary technologies is the prestigious 2001 Edgar M. Queeny Award for Science and Technology, the highest award within Monsanto for scientific achievement and business impact. 
In September 2006, Dr. Liu was recruited by the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) as the Director of the Center for Molecular Electronics and Professor of Physics and Chemistry.  In 2007, Dr. Liu became the Founding Director of the Center for Nanoscience at the UMSL.  In 2009, Dr. Liu became one of the Founding Directors of the St. Louis Institute of Nanomedicine, a consortium of academic and commercial partners devoted to enhancing regional infrastructure for the translational advancement of nanotechnology in medicine.
In October 2011, Dr. Liu was recruited to ASU as a Professor of Physics. In 2012, Dr. Liu was elected as a Fellow of the Microscopy Society of America. In addition to developing advanced electron microscopy techniques, Dr. Liu's research group currently focuses on developing nanoscale architectures for applications in energy, catalysis and sensing. Dr. Liu has been serving on many advisory committees and heavily involved in professional societies and regional economic development initiatives.
