About A. Prof. Chao Liu:

He is a Specially Recruited Expert of 1000 Talents Plan in Sichuan Province. He is a Vice Secretary General of 14th International Symposium on River Sediment. He was awarded the Robert Alfred Carr Prize from the Institution of Civil Engineers (UK). He won the First Class Prize for Scientific and Technology Progress of Chongqing. 

He completed his Ph.D. and undergraduate studies at Sichuan University between 2006 and 2015. Between 2014 and 2015, he was a joint program Ph.D. student in Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Between 2017 and 2019, he was a Visiting Professor in MIT. As a first or corresponding author, he has published 23 peer-review technical papers and 11 of which have been published in Water Resources Research, Journal of Hydrology and Advances in Water Resources. One paper was selected as the Cover Story of Volume 52, Issue 1 in Water Resources Research. He was invited to publish a paper in the 40th Anniversary Issue (2017) in Advances in Water Resources. He is the reviewer for more than 30 international journals. 

He is the PI of 7 national and provincial research projects and the amount of those research fund is more than 3 million Yuan. He participates in 6 national projects and those research fund is more than 16 million Yuan. He has been invited to give 8 plenary and keynote speeches at International Conferences. He was invited to give an academic report in the University of Birmingham.

His recent research interests are the interaction between flow, sediment and bed morphology in vegetated channels and the flow patterns and modeling in compound channels. He investigated the complex wake vortex structure behind vegetation patches and proposed the critical stem Reynolds number for evaluating the presence or absence of stem-scale turbulence inside a vegetation patch. He also proposed analytical models for modeling velocity, bed shear stress and stage-discharge relation in both straight and meandering compound channels.
