Dr. Xiaopei Liu received his Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2010, and then worked as a postdoctoral Research Fellow at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. After that, he joined the School of Information Science and Technology of Shanghai University of Science and Technology in June 2015 as a tenure-track Assistant Professor. His current research interests cover multidisciplinary fields such as computer graphics, computational fluid dynamics, scientific visualization, optimal control and reinforcement learning, as well as parallel computing. He also actively explores applications of the related research to special effects in movies, intelligent CAD (computer-aided design), intelligent medical diagnosis, virtual robot intelligence, and the assistance for fundamental scientific research. His publications cross different fields, which include ACM Transactions on Graphics, IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, AIP Physics of Fluids, and APS Physical Review D, etc.
