Ling Liu serves as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Utah State University, Logan, UT, USA. He received the Ph.D. degree in mechanics and materials from Columbia University, USA (2010), and the M.S. degree (2006) and B.S degree (2003) in engineering mechanics from the Dalian University of Technology in China. His research interest focuses on the broad area of mechanics and materials. He uses multiscale computational methods and experiments to investigate the mechanical, thermal, and electrochemical behavior of energetic materials, composites, biological macromolecules, and nuclear systems. His current research is focused on nanofluidics with applications to high-efficiency energy conversion, high-performance computation of mechanosensitive biological channels, mechanical and thermal protection with low-dimensional nanomaterials, and the transport phenomena in nuclear systems. Dr. Liu has authored over 30 journal papers. He serves as a Member of the Materials Research Society and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. In 2008, he was honored with the Founder Prize and Grant by the American Academy of Mechanics.
