Biography

Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering – The University of Michigan
Research Professor – The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI)
Director – Center for Connected and Automated Transportation

From July 2017 to August 2019, Dr. Liu took a leave of absence from the University of Michigan and served as Chief Scientist on Smart Transportation for DiDi Chuxing in China, one of the leading mobility service providers in the world. While he was with DiDi, he established and led the Urban Transportation Business Unit. Dr. Liu received his Ph.D. degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 2000 and his Bachelor’s degree in Automotive Engineering from Tsinghua University (China) in 1993. Dr. Liu’s research interests focus on transportation network monitoring, modeling, and control, as well as mobility and safety applications with connected and automated vehicles. On these topics, he has published more than 100 refereed journal articles. Dr. Liu is the managing editor of the Journal of Intelligent Transportation Systems and an editor of Transportation Research Part C.
