Qing Huo Liu received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics from Xiamen University, China, and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
He was with the Electromagnetics Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a Research Assistant from September 1986 to December 1988, and as a Postdoctoral Research Associate from January 1989 to February 1990. He was a Research Scientist and Program Leader with Schlumberger-Doll Research, Ridgefield, CT from 1990 to 1995. From 1996 to May 1999 he was an Associate Professor with New Mexico State University. Since June 1999 he has been with Duke University where he is now a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests include computational electromagnetics and acoustics, inverse problems, and their application in nanophotonics, geophysics, biomedical imaging, and electronic packaging. He has published widely in these areas.
Dr. Liu is a Fellow of the IEEE, the Acoustical Society of America, the Electromagnetics Academy, and the Optical Society of America. He served as the founding Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques. He received the 1996 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the White House, the 1996 Early Career Research Award from the Environmental Protection Agency, and the 1997 CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation. He has served as an IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Distinguished Lecturer. He received the 2017 Technical Achievement Award and the 2018 Computational Electromagnetics Award from the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society, and the 2018 Harrington-Mittra Award in Computational Electromagnetics from IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society. In 2018, he also received the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign ECE Distinguished Alumni Award.
