Dr Chang Liu received the B.Sc. degree in automation from Tianjin University, China, in 2010, and the Ph.D. degree in testing, measurement technology and instrument in Beihang University, China, in 2016. From April 2016 to January 2018, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the department of air pollution and environmental technology, Empa-Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (ETH Domain), Dübendorf, Switzerland. He is now a Senior Lecturer in the Agile Tomography Group at the School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh.
Dr Liu’s current research interests include laser spectroscopy, laser imaging, data-driven imaging techniques and their applications to reacting flow-fields diagnostics and environmental monitoring. His expertise is in design of near/mid infrared LAS sensing systems, and development of high-sensitivity and data-driven laser imaging methodologies. It covers fundamental spectroscopic modeling, inverse problem solving, machine learning, hardware acceleration, signal processing and embedded system. In collaboration with worldwide industrial and academic partners, Dr Liu and his team focus on providing cutting-edge laser-based sensing solutions for various challenging problems in both the industry and academia.
