Prof. Xiaoguang Liu received his Bachelor’s degree from Zhejiang University, China, in 2004 and Ph.D. degree from Purdue University, USA, in 2010. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, Davis in Nov. 2011 as an assistant professor and was promoted to an associate professor in Jul. 2017.
At UC Davis, his research group (http://dart.ece.ucdavis.edu
) is investigating cutting-edge concepts in high-frequency and high-speed circuit and system designs. Specifically, he is interested in novel design and implementation techniques in 1) microelectronic and photonic devices, such as micro-electromechanical (MEMS) devices; 2) high-frequency (RF to THz) circuit designs; 3) high-speed wireline and optical communications; 4) high-precision sensing using radar and laser time-of-flight (ToF) principles; 5) antennas and passive components.
In relation to MTT-10, Dr. Liu’s group has been investigating the use of low-power wearable radar sensors in long-term monitoring of chronic cardiovascular disease, fetal heart rate detection, and dielectric spectroscopy.
Besides typical duties inside the University and professional societies, Dr. Liu has consulted for a number of companies and national labs on topics related to high-frequency circuits, antennas, and systems. His amateur radio call sign is AI6DW.
