Dr. Gang Liu holds a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Jilin University, China, followed by research work in both Theoretical Physics and Theoretical Chemistry as a post-doctoral fellow at the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Southern Methodist University, Harvard University, and California State University Northridge. He helped develop the MPI course, Working Template, and Double-layer Master-Slave Model programming tools.

His primary research projects include a new molecular dynamics scheme for crystal structures under pressure, parallelization of FLAPW (one form of density functional theory) with MPI, algorithm improvement for the dimensional perturbation theory, as well as years of other programming and calculation. Dr. Liu has extended the above molecular dynamics work into dynamical equations of the period vectors in crystals under arbitrary external forces.
