  • Name: Ye Liu
  • Alias: Alex
  • Department: Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Direction: Solid State Physics
  • Degree: Ph.D. Candidate
  • Website (under construction):
  • Focus: Major: Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems(MEMS), especially microfluidics systems and opto-fluidic systems. Using liquid materials to implement optical systems for micro-scale image.
  • Interests: Imaging in micro-scales. Design and building opto-fluidic systems for visual data collection in micro-scales. Data analysis and processing for the visual data obtained by actual systems.
  • Interest in visualization: I’d consider myself among a “designer” and a “domain scientist”. As my research is interdisciplinary and requires large amount of data and sometimes image, I’d like to learn methods to design my experiments and reports, making them more impressive, efficient, and understandable to others.
  • Expectations from this class: Getting basic ideas of information visualization, figuring out more efficient ways to describe and present the result and methodology of my research. Learn some tools and design methodology throughout the class and project.
  • Skill set: Have certain skills for programming using C, and some C++. Also familiar with circuit design tool such as Cadance®. Much familiar with physical simulation tool as ANSYS® and Zemax®, which, however, might not be useful in this course.
