Personal note: UIUC is my preferred name for the university. Frankly, outside of Illinois, how many people can spell 'illinois' correctly? . Meanwhile, UIUC, pronounced in Chinese, is a really good name (又爱又喜)

Yan Liu obtained his B.S. and M.E. from Wuhan University, China, and M.CS from
the University of Iowa. Yan's primary
research interest is in high-performance optimization and scalable systems, software, and algorithms. In CIGI, he's interested in solving large-scale geospatial
optimization problems using scalable approaches that are capable for harnessing massive
supercomputing resources on cyberinfrastructure. He was the technical coordinator of the GISolve middleware project - a leading GIS solution on cyberinfrastructure, from July 2007 to September 2010. He was the project manager of the NSF CyberGIS project from October 2010 to April 2012. He is now leading the initiative in developing extreme scale geospatial codes for the Blue Waters supercomputer. He is also a XSEDE (the successor of TeraGrid) staff scientist in scientific computing and science gateway research and EOT.
Yan loves sports. He plays basketball in the Kenney Gym Recreation Club. He used to play a lot of soccer. When he has vacation time, he likes to travel with his family to national and state parks. He likes photography, but gets less time for practice as work loads up. Now he could just barely manage the CIGI photo gallery.
