Our primary research interest is Engineering for Biology and Medicine. We are using combined theoretical and experimental approaches to characterize the interfacial phenomena at the micro/nano scale and in biological systems. The applications including design and optimization of electric field guided assembly of nanoparticles, linking blood rheology and viscoelasticity to the underlying blood cell aggregation, characterization of flexible valve-viscous fluid interaction and dynamics of an artificial heart, DNA sequencing in functionalized nanopores, etc. Since 2008, the Liu's group have been exploring two new areas: Nanomedicine and Biosensing.
