Biography

Zhenhua Liu is currently assistant professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, also affiliated with Department of Computer Science and Smart Energy Technology Cluster, since August 2014. During the year 2014-2015, he is on leave for the ITRI-Rosenfeld Fellowship in the Energy and Environmental Technology Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Dr. Liu received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at the California Institute of Technology, where he was co-advised by Prof. Adam Wierman and Prof. Steven Low. Before Caltech, he received an M.S. degree of Computer Science & Technology in 2009 and a B.E. degree of Measurement & control in 2006, both from Tsinghua University with honor, as well as a B.S. degree of Economics from Peking University in 2009.

Research

Zhenhua Liu's current research interests include sustainable computing and networking systems, cloud platforms for big data applications and energy management, and renewable energy integration. He develops and applies techniques from distributed system, nonlinear optimization, game theory, and online algorithm for these systems. In particular, his research combines rigorous analysis and system design, and goes from theory, to prototype, and eventually to industry to make real impacts.
