Dr. Chaoqun Liu received his bachelor of science degree in 1968 and master of science degree in 1981 from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and PhD in 1989 from the University of Colorado in Denver, Colorado, USA. He is currently a Distinguished Scholar Professor, the highest honored academic title, and Director of the Center for Numerical Simulation and Modeling at the University of Texas in Arlington, USA. He has been working in the areas of high-order direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large eddy simulation (LES) for flow transition and turbulence for 25 years since 1990. As PI, he has been awarded 47 federal research grants of over 5.7 million US dollars since 1990 by the United States. He has published 7 books, 86 journal papers, and 125 conference papers. As a principal lecturer, he conducted the TGS 2015 workshop on New Theory of Turbulence Generation and Sustenance at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, on June 4–6, 2015, sponsored by 20 research institutions with over 220 audiences. He also chaired the first and the third AFOSR international conference on DNS/LES. He is an expert in high-order DNS/LES for flow transition, turbulence, and shock and boundary layer interaction.
