Dr. Liu will follow Dr. Huei Peng, the Roger L. McCarthy Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan. Dr. Peng has conducted research under the CCAT grant on driving etiquette. Dr. Peng’s role as Mcity Director will come to an end on December 31, 2021. This will not impact any of Dr. Liu’s other appointments, including CCAT.
