Shaohua Liu, Ph.D.

Shaohua Liu

Biography

Dr. Liu joined West Physics in December 2014 to pursue his professional career in Medical Physics where he is currently a Medical Physicist. Before that, Dr. Liu worked in the University of Kentucky Accelerator Laboratory on a DOE (Department of Energy)-funded project to measure the neutron scattering cross sections on 54Fe for advanced nuclear reactor design. He also had worked in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory for three years on a DOE-funded R&D project to build the US first-ever ultra high resolution, multi-reflection time-of-flight nuclear isobar/isomer spectrometer and separator to provide pure rare isotope beams. Dr. Liu had spent four years obtaining his Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Physics from Vanderbilt University. Dr. Liu had his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics from Beijing Normal University.

Dr. Liu has been interested in Medical Physics for a long time since his graduate studies in China. Dr. Liu had a summer internship in 2004 at the National Institute for Radiological Protection, China CDC to participate in the development of a 3D automatic scanning water tank system for quality assurance for medical linear accelerators and Gamma knives. Dr. Liu also studied the radiation mechanism of the low-energy heavy ions with biological samples. Moreover, Dr. Liu has had extensive teaching experience at different levels and has been of great interest in helping people understand and enjoy science and technology, especially educating the public of nuclear radiation.

Dr. Liu is originally from Qingdao (Tsingtao), Shandong Province, China.
