Cheng-Hsien Liu, associate professor of Power Mechanical Engineering Department at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan, heads an interdisciplinary laboratory focused on microsystem technology (especially on Bio Lab on a Chip). Prof. Cheng-Hsien Liu received his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 2000. While at Stanford, he worked with Prof. Kenny and focused his Ph.D. research on high-performance MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) sensors with the performance enhancement via advanced feedback control techniques. In 1999-2000, he worked at Halo Data Devices Inc., San Jose, where he focused on the development of micro-drives for portable information storage applications. Dr. Liu received his B.S. degree in power mechanical engineering from National Tsing Hua University, the M.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Lehigh University, the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University, respectively. Since autumn 2000, Dr. Liu has been with National Tsing Hua University as a faculty member. In 2006-2007, he was appointed as the vice chairman of Power Mechanical Engineering Department. In 2006-2008, he had been served as the division head of Electrical Control Division. He currently oversees graduate students in the Micro-Systems and Control Laboratory, whose research activities cover a variety of areas such as microsystem chips, advanced optoelectro studies, and biomedical devices. He presently leads an interdisciplinary team, including faculty with expertise on life science, medical doctor, physics and engineering, to focus on the research of Liver on Lab Chip. This research program is funded by Taiwan National Science and Technology Program for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Prof. Liu is author or co-author on over 60 journal, conference, and workshop articles focused on microsystem technology, and has delivered over 40 invited/seminar talks on his research work. He is member of ASME, IEEE, SPIE and ACS.
