Dr Liu Hongfei is a Senior Scientist and Group Leader of Surface Engineering and Protective Coating (SEPC) at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), Singapore. He received his PhD degree in Condensed Matter Physics in 2001 from the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. After that he went to US, Finland, Germany, and Singapore for Postdoc research and then joined IMRE in 2006. His current research is focused on SEPC of metallic alloys, including laser-based alloy process such as surface treatment, direct energy deposition, and surface enhancement. He has published over 190 papers in peer-reviewed journals with an H-index of 30 (as of May 02, 2023).
