Wu Liu is an associate professor and clinical medical physicist at Department of Radiation Oncology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA. He was born in Beijing, China. He received B.S. degree in Astronomy from Nanjing University, Nanjing, China and M.S. degree in Astrophysics from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China. He obtained his M.S. degree in Computer Science and Ph.D. degree in Medical Physics (2007) from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI, USA. He then completed his postdoctoral training at Stanford University. Before re-joining Stanford, he was a medical physicist at Yale-New Haven hospital and an assistant professor at Yale University.
Liana Jia, PhD
Liana Jia obtained her PhD degree in UCAS in 2020. She worked at MPI as a junior scientist from Oct 2020 to April 2022. Currently she is working on the nanoparticle-enhanced radiotherapy project at the Liu Lab.
Weiyuan Sun, PhD
My name is Weiyuan Sun and I will work in Dr. Liu Wu's group as postdoc on the potential clinical applications of focused kV x-ray technique project. I completed my Ph.D. in Physics from the University at Albany-SUNY in 2021.
I have gained experience in experimental design and testing novel x-ray imaging techniques, and have experience with X-ray polycapillary optics. My Ph.D. research consists of work in hard x-ray focusing for therapy and x-ray phase imaging. I am also interested in other medical applications of x-ray and novel x-ray imaging.
Eric Nguyen, BS
Eric Nguyen graduated from UC Davis in 2021 with a B.S. degree in Applied Physics. He is currently assisting with Professor Liu’s AI-enhanced medical image analysis project where he is conducting Monte Carlo simulations of Stanford Med's recently acquired, biology-guided radiation therapy (BGRT) technology – RefleXion X1. Fascinated by the various research being performed in the Liu Lab, Eric hopes to pursue further studies in the field of medical physics and plans on applying to graduate programs in the near future.
