Brief Biography

Dr. Cheng-Hsien Liu received his Ph.D. degree from in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. Since Autumn 2000, he had been with National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, Republic of China, as an assistant professor in the Power Mechanical Engineering Department and a joint faculty member in the Institute of Nano Engineering and Micro Systems. Presently he is a professor in the Power Mechanical Engineering Department and Institute of NanoEngineering and MicroSystems at National Tsing Hua University. He had served as the Chairman of International Intercollegiate Ph.D. Program  March 2015 through July 2016. In 1999-2000, he worked as a senior Electrical Engineer at Halo Data Devices Inc., San Jose, where he focuses on the development of micro-drives for portable information storage applications. While at Stanford, he worked with Dr. Kenny at Stanford Micro-structures and Sensors Laboratory and focused his Ph.D. work on high-performance MEMS sensors. He currently oversees graduate students in the Micro-Systems and Control Laboratory, whose research activities cover a variety of areas in MicroElectroMechanical Systems, System Dynamics/Modeling/Control and Nanotechnology such as biomimetic array chip for bio-object manipulation targeting for tissue engineering/ drug screening applications, Bio Lab on a chip, Micro Total Analysis Systems, Liver on Lab Chip, Biomedical Instruments, microphotonics, and advanced tunable MEMS grating for optical communication applications, and microsystem robust/optimal control. He received A. Kobayashi Young Investigator Award in Experimental Science from International Conference on Computational and Experimental Engineering and Sciences in 2010, the award of Outstanding Chemical Engineering Article of the Year 2010, the award for University Special Talents from National Science Council (國科會補助大專校院獎勵特殊優秀人才措施獎勵, 2010~2011), the Academic Excellent Award from National Tsing Hua University (ranking top 4% in 2010, 2013 &2015)(清華大學學術卓越獎勵2006~2014/清華大學2010/2013/2015年教師學術卓越獎勵第一等級–全校前4%的排名),  Outstanding Research Program Award from National Science and Technology Program in the Biomedical field (2012), 2011 Outstanding Research Award from National Science Council (NSC) in 2012 (100年度國科會傑出研究獎).
