Dr Shiliang Wang’s research interests are in the Synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials and nanostructures.

Dr Shiliang Wang is the UQ Postdoc Research Fellow of School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering.

After completed his PhD at Central South University (CSU, China) in 2008, he worked as a Lecturer and then an Associate Professor at CSU in 2009. From 2011 to 2013, he worked as a Visiting Scholar in UQ, and worked as a UQ Postdoc Research Fellow from August 2013.

Shiliang is good at the CVD synthesis and growth mechanism of nanomaterials and nanostructures, and recently focus on the characterization of the mechanical properties of nanowhiskers, adhesion and friction between nanowhiskers and substrates.
