Dr. Liaw received his M.S. in Environmental Engineering from Florida Institute of Technology in 1975; and Ph.D. from University of Alabama in Huntsville in 1980. He joined Alabama A&M University in 1980 and became Professor in 1990. Dr. Liaw has more than thirty (30) years of teaching, research, and management experience in university, government, and military grants and contracts. He has been suc-cessful in proposal writing and publications. He has planned, directed, and executed more than ten re-search projects at Alabama A&M University with contract values in excess of two million dollars. He has authored over fifty (50) technical articles, reports, and papers as a result of his research work.
Dr. Liaw has been heavily involved in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for many years. He has received research projects in the areas of low-density viscous nozzle flow, hypersonic viscous flow, and crystal growth modeling through NASA, the Air Force, the Army, and the National Science Foundation (NSF). Dr. Liaw was selected as NASA Administrator’s Fellow, in 2006.
Dr. Liaw’s current research interests are in engineering education and to investigate the potential applications of nanotechnology for space application, especially in the areas of water and air purification.
