General description: Founded in 1881, the University of Liverpool (UoL) is one of the six original ‘red brick’ civic universities and is a founding member of the elite Russell Group of the UK’s leading research universities. Associated with nine Nobel Laureates, the University is recognised internationally for its high-quality teaching and research.
The Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering undertakes world-class research and offers a highly respected range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. The research quality of the Department in RAF (2014) has been judged as 90 % world-leading or internationally excellent. The Technological Plasma Group at UoL is one of the leading plasma groups in the world, working on experimental and modelling studies of low-temperature technological plasmas and their applications.
Persons involved in PIONEER:
- Xin Tu is a Reader in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics at UoL. He has been working on interdisciplinary research at the interface of plasma science and chemical engineering directed towards environmental clean-up and energy applications. Significant efforts have been devoted to plasma-catalysis for gas cleaning and the synthesis of fuels and chemicals from a range of carbon sources.
