HONG LIU Professor of Physics in MIT
Hong Liu has long been interested in issues in quantum gravity, such as the quantum nature of black holes and the Big Bang singularity, using the framework of string theory. During the last decade, his interests also branched into understanding dynamics of exotic quantum matter, 
including the quark-gluon plasma and strongly correlated electron systems. 
Hong Liu received his B.S. in 1993 from the University of Science and Technology of China and his Ph.D. in 1997 from Case Western Reserve University. 
He was a postdoctoral fellow at Imperial College and New High Energy Theory Center of Rutgers University, before joining the faculty at MIT in 2003. 
He was an Alfred Sloan Fellow, an Outstanding Junior Investigator of the Department of Energy, and a Simons Fellow.
