Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Luqiao Liu is an associate professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. His research focuses on fabricating nanoscale spintronic devices to achieve efficient control over magnetic dynamics. He also explores new material and physics mechanisms to improve the performance of spintronic devices for memory, logic and neuromorphic applications. He has received an NSF Career Award, AFOSR Young Investigator Award, McMillan Award and International Union of Pure and Applied Physics Young Scientist Award. Before joining MIT, he was a researcher at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center. He earned a BS in physics from Peking University, and a PhD in applied physics from Cornell University.
