Zhen Liu received his bachelor's degree in nuclear engineering and technology from Sichuan University and his master's degree in physics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
He worked with the AMS-02 collaboration from 2017 to 2021 as a PhD student at the University of Geneva. His research was mainly focused on the measurement of the Cosmic-ray Magnesium and Aluminum fluxes using data collected by AMS-02. During that time, he also contributed to the AMS-02 data-taking activities monitoring the Tracker, TRD, and ACC detectors as well as the Thermal system.
After his PhD, he switched his research topic to the neutrino experiment, and now he works on the JUNO experiment at IHEP as a postdoc.
