Dr. Chaoqun Liu received a BS and MS from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1968 and 1981, respectively. He obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado at Denver, USA, in 1989. He is currently a Tenured and Distinguished Professor and the director of the Center for Numerical Simulation and Modeling at the University of Texas at Arlington, USA. He has worked on high-order direct numerical simulation/large eddy simulation (DNS/LES) for flow transition and turbulence for 33 years. He is the founder and principal contributor of the Liutex method and third-generation vortex definition and identification methods, including Omega, Liutex/Rortex, Modified Liutex-Omega, Liutex-Core-Line methods, Objective Liutex, RS vorticity decomposition, and UTA R-NR velocity gradient tensor decomposition. He is also the founder of Liutex-based new fluid kinematics.
