Dr-Universe-230PULLMAN, Wash. – Scientists could see and feel electricity in nature long before they discovered how to make it. Maybe you’ve seen it during a powerful electrical storm or felt a little shock from static electricity.

Liu and a team of all kinds of scientists and engineers are working to make sure we have renewable energy for the future. Part of their work includes designing and building smart cities.
