Fei LIU was born in Benxi, Liaoning province in 1979. She received her BS degree from University of Montpellier in 2005 and PhD degree from University of Poitiers in 2010. The topic of her PhD thesis is “Fluorination reactions of unsaturated amine derivatives in superacid”. From 2010 to 2011, she worked as Post-doc in University of Technology of Compiègne/School of Chemistry Organic and Mineral (Supervisors: Pr. Christophe Len). Then she joined the research group of Prof. Francois Jerome in department of chemistry of university of Poitiers. In 01/2014, she returned to china and joined Dalian Institute of chemical Physics as an associated professor.
