Dr. Liu’s research integrates Artificial Intelligence (AI) to simulate and optimize chemical and biochemical processes, aiming to elevate the efficiency and sustainability of these operations. His work spans AI applications in chemical and biochemical systems, intelligent process control, wastewater treatment, and waste-to-energy technologies. His notable achievements include the development of bioelectrochemical systems (BES) for agricultural wastewater treatment and energy recovery, AI-based biochemical process modeling and output prediction, and fault detection systems for the wastewater treatment process. His current research particularly focuses on:

  • AI-enhanced biochemical process simulation and prediction
  • AI-aided wastewater process control and optimization
  • BES as waste to energy applications




We welcome postdocs with a solid publication record and rich experience in one or more of the following areas.
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Bioelectrochemical Systems (BES)
  • Intelligent Process Control of Industrial Process
