​Dr Bin Luo received his doctoral degree in Physical Chemistry from National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) of China, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) in July 2013. In August 2014, Dr Luo joined the University of Queensland (UQ) as a full-time Research Fellow in the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN). He then secured a highly competitive UQ Postdoctoral Research Fellowship commencing in 2015.

​Dr Bin Luo' s research focuses on the design of new functional nanomaterials/nanostructures for energy storage application. Specially, the goal of his current research is to develop two-dimensional hybrid nanostructures for high performance energy storage devices, including lithium-ion batteries, sodium-ion batteries, Lithium-sulfur batteries, and Aluminium-ion batteries. Dr Luo's research interest also includes the design of next generation energy conversion or storage devices (i.e. flexible/transparent/microsized batteries, supercapacitors, or solar cells) and new conceptual energy storage system (i.e. solar rechargeable battery).

Research Impacts

Dr Luo has been working on the energy related nanomaterials over 8 years and contributed more than 50 original publications (including 2 book chapters and 12 first-authored peer-reviewed articles on top ranking journals such as Adv. Mater., Energy Environ. Sci., Nano Energy, Adv. Sci., Small, etc.). As of June 2017, nine papers (including 5 first-authored) have been recognised as highly cited papers by Essential Science Indicators (ESI, top 1% of the academic field of Materials Science based on a highly cited threshold for the field and publication year). His work has received over 2,000 citations as of July 2017 with h-index of 21 (ISI). Dr Luo's research has generated significant novel IP: he is an inventor on 13 patents on functional nanomaterials and their applications for energy conversion or storage including lithium-ion batteries, supercapacitors, and catalysis.
