Dr. Liangbing Hu always extends an invitation to any motivated individuals interested in participating in the Bing Research Group to further their education with dynamic hands-on research experience.

Take a look at some examples of how students from various academic environments are getting involved…

  2017 Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth - Science and Technology Series

 Postdoc Tian Li presents recent findings in transparent wood and "Nanostructured Paper for Flexible Electronics and Energy Devices." 

 2015 Maryland Nanoscience Day 

 Postdoc Wei Luo and Kun Fu gave talks about our research in nano science to Maryland students.


Gemstone Program with a Topic on NATURE, University of Maryland (2014-present)

Dr. Hu will be the mentor of a Gemstone Project entitled “Nanopaper Applications To Universalize Renewable Electronics” (NATURE). 

"The Gemstone Program at the University of Maryland is a unique multidisciplinary four-year research program for selected undergraduate honors students of all majors. Under guidance of faculty mentors and Gemstone staff, teams of students design, direct and conduct significant research, often but not exclusively exploring the interdependence of science and technology with society."


 Women in Engineering LEAD Academy, (2014-future)

"The Women in Engineering Leadership Enhancement, Application and Design Academies have been created to provide high school students with the opportunity to spend a day learning and applying principles related to a particular engineering discipline offered at the University of Maryland."

• Partnering with Wheaton High School Engineering, scheduled to be in Fall 2014
   - Field trips from Wheaton High School (Silver Spring, MD) to Dr. Hu's lab in the Energy Research Center at the    Universiy of Maryland.    
   - Organizing summer internship opportunities in Dr. Hu's group for Wheaton High School students.
   - Developing design-based lesson plans for students at Wheaton High School. 


Maryland Day (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and future)

"Science—whether physics, biology, engineering, chemistry or mathematics—is for everyone. Learn about laser technology and extreme robotics, then get blasted in the Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel. Explore skeletons, outer space, modern electronic devices and the weather."



 • Research Fellowship at Army Research Laboratory (2012, 2013, 2014, future)

Steve Lacey worked with Dr. Kang Xu’s lab from 2013 to 2014 as an undergraduate student, and will continue his work as a PhD from Fall 2014. 







Nick worked with Dr. Kang Xu’s lab at ARL from 2011 to 2013 and published a paper as the leading author. “Weadock, N.; Varongchayakul, N.; Wan, J.; Lee, S.; Seog, J.; Hu, L.  Determination of mechanical properties of the SEI in sodium ion batteries via colloidal probe microscopy, Nano Energy 2013, 2(5), 713-719.”





Summer REU Program (2013, 2014, future)

"In an effort to produce more engineering researchers, the Clark School offers undergraduates both informal and formal research opportunities. Informal opportunities are those arranged with individual faculty members, typically through each department's director of undergraduate programs."

National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site, "Research Experiences in Transportation Electrification."
