Liu Zhiyuan

Dr. Zhiyuan (Terry) Liu is a Professor in the School of Transportation at Southeast University in Nanjing China. He attained his Ph.D degree from National University of Singapore (NUS) in Transportation Engineering in 2011. Prior to his studies in Singapore, he has obtained a Bachelor degree in Transportation Engineering from Southeast University. From 2011 to 2012, he worked as a postdoc research fellow in NUS. From 2012 to 2015, he was a lecturer in Monash University Australia, where he also served as the director of the Master of Transportation Systems Program. Any interested Ph.D applicants with a Master degree on Transportation Engineering or relevant areas are encouraged to apply for the international Ph.D program (with scholarship) in Southeast University at Nanjing China.
