About PI: 
Dr. Chang Liu joined the University of Connecticut, Department of Mechanical 
Engineering in August 2023. He conducted postdoc research in the Department of 
Physics at the University of California, Berkeley from 2021 to 2023, where his 
major research focus is analyzing double-diffusive convection and geophysical 
flows using bifurcation theory, asymptotic analysis and direct numerical 
simulations. He obtained a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Johns 
Hopkins University in 2021, with research focused on wall-bounded shear flows 
analyzed by control theory and optimization. He also obtained M.S.E. degrees in 
both Applied Mathematics and Statistics (2021) and Mechanical Engineering (2020) 
from Johns Hopkins University. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in Naval 
Architecture and Ocean Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University with a 
second major in Computer Technology and its Applications, both in 2017. Dr. 
Chang Liu has published more than 10 journal articles as the first author 
including four articles on Journal Fluid Mechanics. One paper is recognized by
