Cunliang Liu

Prof. Cunliang Liu, Humboldt Research Fellow, Deputy Dean of School of Power and Energy in Northwestern Polytechnical University, received his Bachelor Degree in Thermal Engineering in 2005, his Ph.D in Aeronautical and Astronautical Propulsion Theory and Engineering in 2009, both from Northwestern Polytechnical University. He works on the state of the art heat transfer and cooling technology in aero-engine and gas turbine system. His research interests mainly include film cooling, heat transfer analysis and cooling augmentation technique for turbine, heat transfer under unsteady aero-thermal conditions. At present, Prof. Liu is member of the ASME Gas Turbine Heat Transfer Committee (K-14), and the header of Shaanxi Key Laboratory of Thermal Sciences in Aero-engine System. He has been awarded the Humboldt Research Fellowship, the First Prize of Science and Technology Award of Shaanxi Higher Education and the Shaanxi Young Scholar Award. He has also served as Session Chair for several ASME TURBO EXPOs, and the reviewer for top international journals in the field of heat transfer. He is the author or co-author of more than 70 papers in archival journals and conference proceedings. 9 patents have been authorized to him. He has taken part in more than 20 research projects, leading 15 of them in the past 5 years.
