Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Accepting new students?
Probably not for 2021-2022
Trainings and Identities:
MORE Mentor Training, Implicit Bias Training
Research Interests:
Mechanobiology and mechanotransduction, cell migration, clathrin-mediated endocytosis, cytoskeleton, bottom-up synthetic biology

Research in the Liu lab lies at the interface of biology and engineering. We are fascinated by cellular dynamics and mechanics, particularly during cell migration and clathrin-mediated endocytosis. We explore biological signal processing at the membrane using both top-down and bottom-up approaches.
