Chein-Shan Liu was born in Taiwan on May 21, 1958. He received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from the Feng Chia University, Taichung City, Taiwan, in 1980, the M.S. degree in applied mathematics from the National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu City, Taiwan, in 1982, and the Ph.D. degree in civil engineering from the National Taiwan University, Taipei City, Taiwan, in 1993. From 1984 to 1988, he was a Research Associate at the Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, Taoyuan, China. He had been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the National Taiwan University from 1993 to 2000, an Associate Professor at the National Taiwan Ocean University, Keelung City, Taiwan, from 2000 to 2003, a Professor at the National Taiwan Ocean University from 2003 to 2008, a Distinguished Professor at the National Taiwan Ocean University from 2008 to 2009, a Professor at the National Taiwan University from 2009 to 2010, and a Distinguished Professor at the National Taiwan University from 2010 to 2013, and presently Liu is a Lifetime Distinguished Professor at the National Taiwan University. His research interests can be categorized into two areas. One is material characterization including constitutive modeling, plasticity, micromagnetism, friction behavior, thermodynamics, and applied mechanics. The other is computational mathematics, including group-preserving scheme, Lie-group shooting method, Lie-group adaptive method, novel algorithms for nonlinear algebraic equations, regularization methods, inverse problems, optimization problems, and Krylov subspace method for ill-posed linear systems. Liu has published over 250 SCI papers and obtained several academic awards being national or international, including Highly Cited Researcher. He served as an associate editor or editor for many international journals.
