A core focus in Liu’s research has been studying and analyzing natural and human-induced disasters. His research is centred on developing more resilient, intelligent, and sustainable civil engineering solutions by analyzing and mitigating landslides and evaluating and improving the design and performance of resilient infrastructures for post-disaster mitigation and community reconstruction.
Dr. Liu is accepting applications of prospective graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and visiting scholars with the background of, including but not limited to, advanced experimental geomechanics, wave characterization, constitutive and numerical modelling, remote sensing, Bayesian inferences, and artificial intelligence. Highly motivated undergraduate students and M.Eng. students looking for research experience are also encouraged to apply.
