Fawang Liu received his M.S. degree in computational mathematics from the Fuzhou University, Fuzhou, China and Ph.D. degree from the Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland, in 1982 and 1991, respectively. Since graduation, he has been working in computational and applied mathematics at the Fuzhou University, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, and Xiamen University as a Lecturer, an Associate Professor, a Research Fellow, a Senior Research Fellow, and a Professor, respectively. Currently, he is working at the Mathematical Sciences at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia. His research interest is numerical analysis and techniques for solving a wide variety of problems in applicable mathematics, including fractional differential equations, anomalous transport by fractional dynamics, semiconductor device equations, microwave heating problems, gas-solid reactions, singular perturbation problem, and saltwater intrusion into aquifer systems. He has supervised over thirty Ph.D. students on numerical methods and numerical analysis of complex dynamical systems and published over 170 papers in this field.
