Campus. He received his Ph.D. in Business Administration with a concentration in
a minor in Computer Science from the
University of Massachusetts Amherst in May 2008.
He received a BS in
from Tsinghua University, China, and an MS in Transportation
from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
His research interests
supply chain networks, transportation networks, telecommunication
networks, electric power networks as well as financial networks. In
particular, he studies the dynamics of such networks and their
interrelationships, along with risk management.
He is an Associate Editor of the journal Decision Support Systems.
In 2005-2006 Leo was President of the UMass Amherst INFORMS Student
Chapter. Previously, he was the webmaster for the chapter and assumed
this task again in late Spring 2007. In
2007 and in 2008, Leo received an Outstanding Service Award from the
INFORMS Student Chapter.
In 2008, Dr. Liu was elected to Beta Gamma Sigma, the Business Honor
He was recognized for his research with an award from Penn State Hazleton.
