Dr. Qiang Liu joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering in Southern University of Sci. & Tech. as research associate scientist. He received the Ph.D degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Norfolk State University, Virginia, USA, in 2014. His current work involves microwave induced thermoacoustic imaging, couplings between photon and phonon, and THz Technology. Dr. Liu has published papers in reputed journals, including Optics Express, Scientific Reports, Materials and Chinese Journal of Lasers. He also obtains two Chinese patents. Currently, he is the PI of a project that funded by Guangdong Natural Science Foundation. He has been invited to give academic talks in the University of Rochester (USA), Institute of Physics (IOP) Chinese Academy of Science (China), Franche-Comté Électronique Mécanique Thermique et Optique - Sciences et Technologies (FEMTOST, Besançon in France), Old Dominion University (USA) and Norfolk State University (USA).
