Biography

Huan Liu is a professor of computer science and engineering with the School of Computing, Informatics, Decision Systems Engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

Liu's research focuses on Feature Selection and Social Computing, developing computational methods that deal with massive or high-dimensional data (web, text, and social media), speed up data mining and machine learning, and design efficient algorithms to enable effective problem solving ranging from basic research, text/Web mining, bioinformatics, image mining, to real-world applications where intelligent systems play a pivotal role. He is a fellow of IEEE and a distinguished scientist of ACM.
