Jingfei Liu

Jingfei Liu, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, is expert in biomedical acoustics. His research focuses on the investigation of the fundamental principles in the interaction of sound, especially ultrasound, with biological tissues and the application of these principles in developing both diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for human health problems such as cancers and cardiovascular diseases. His current research interests include developing new elastography (elasticity imaging) methods based on acoustic surface wave and guided waves for medical diagnosis, investigating the response of immune system to focused ultrasound for cancer immunotherapy, and designing high-performance focused ultrasound array transducers for therapeutic applications.

As a researcher, Jingfei Liu received a multidisciplinary training in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering. He received his B.E. in Mechanical Engineering and B.A. in English from Dalian University of Technology, China in 2002 and 2003, respectively. From 2003 to 2007 he worked as a Lecturer at Beijing Polytechnic, Beijing, China. He received his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson University in 2009, and his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012. In 2014, he received his first Ph.D. in Mechanics and Energy from the Université de Lorraine, France and joined the University of California, Davis for his three-year postdoctoral training at the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Right before joining Texas Tech, he completed his second Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a bioengineering focus from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2020. His previous research covers different areas including ultrasonic material nondestructive testing and evaluation, physical acoustics, acoustic sensor development, and acoustics signal processing.
