1998 BS, Electrical Engineering, Nanjing University, China

Dr. Liu received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Nanjing University, Nanjing, China, in 1998 and 2001, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, in 2007.

From 2007 to 2009, he was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Virginia. In September 2009, he joined the faculty of the University of Notre Dame, where he is currently an Assistant Professor of electrical engineering. He is also a research faculty fellow with the Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics Initiative (AD&T) of the University of Notre Dame. His research interests include millimeter- and submillimeter-wave device and circuit design, modeling, and testing, quasi-optical techniques, terahertz integrated circuits and systems, terahertz detectors for imaging and spectroscopy, novel microwave materials and devices, superconducting electronics, microfabrication and processing.

Dr. Liu is a member of the IEEE, the HKN honor society, and a member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT) society. Dr. Liu is a reviewer for IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory & Tech., IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Lett., IEEE Trans. On Appl. Supercon., IEEE Trans. On Adv. Packaging, IET Electron. Lett., IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation, Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications (JEMWA) Progress in Electromagnetic Research. He served as a session chair for the IEEE ASC conference (2006), and a student paper competition judge for the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (2011), in Baltimore. His students won the 2012 IEEE APMC (Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference, Taiwan) Student Prize and the 2012 IRMMW-THz (International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter and Terahertz Waves, Wollongong, Australia) conference Best Student Paper Award.
