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.
I aspire to create a collegial, fun, respectful, and collaborative lab. I recognize everybody has different needs and expectations and will incorporate different elements of training depending on your career paths and ambitions. I see my role as a coach and will bring the most out of each person coming through my lab.
