As a teacher and academic advisor, Liu, a faculty member in the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence, one of the Fulton Schools, has guided more than 30 students in earning their doctoral degrees. Those are among achievements that have recently earned him the designation as an ASU Regents Professor, the highest honor bestowed on the university’s faculty members. His work developing computational methods to advance data mining, machine learning and social computing has led to global recognition for his contributions. He has also gained a reputation as a valuable mentor. Doctoral students he has guided say Liu helped make them not only experts but also leaders in their fields.
