ProfileDr. David Liu
Before joining the faculty at Xi'an JiaoTong-Liverpool University, Dr. David (Lianfeng) LIU was a distinguished professor at CUGB where he focused his research on Mathematical Modelling of Granular Dynamics and Particle Flows. He was previously Lecturer of Mathematics at Northern Consortium UK, as well as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Oxford University (Department of Engineering Sciences), where he conducted research on Constitutive Mathematical Modelling using advanced numerical methods. He had ever held Research Associate positions at Aston University (UK), Newcastle University (UK) respectively, and Honorary Visiting Scholar at University of New South Wales (Australia).
He had served as Acting Head of Department of Mathematical Sciences at XJTLU from 2007 to 2011. His recent research was sponsored by the Natural Science Foundation of Jiangsu Province on the project (Project No. BK20131179) entitled “Discrete Element Modelling of Impact Attritions of Agglomerates of Fine Particles”, which was carried out jointly with the Department of Computer Science at XJTLU and the University of Birmingham UK. He published research outcomes in the fields of Financial Options, Artificial Intelligence, and Physics. He had published more than 80 research papers. His research findings had appeared in the international peer-reviewed journals such as Communication in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation, Powder Technology, Journal of Materials Science Letters, Journal Physics D: Applied Physics, Expert Systems with Applications, International Journal of Materials and Product Technology, Physica A, International Journal of Engineering Science, International Journal of Mathematics in Operational Research, Journal of Financial Engineering, Fintech and Journal of Data Science.
