Where Are They Now?

 Another CALCE Alum Honored

Former CALCE student, Yan Liu, Ph.D., received the Outstanding Young Engineer Award from the 2017 IEEE EPS Society.

Dr. Liu received the award for her contributions in electronic packaging materials and nanotechnology through her work in the superhydrophobic surface for energy and electronic applications, novel polymeric materials for advanced coating and electronic packaging.

Yan Liu earned her Ph.D. in Reliability Engineering at the University of Maryland ind 2006, during which time she worked with CALCE as a research assistant in the Electronic Products and Systems Center. At CALCE, Professor Pecht served as Dr. Liu's advisor, and the two share a patent.
