About me

Dr. Hang Liu is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Massachusetts Lowell. His research interests include exploiting emerging hardware — such as Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), high-end CPU and SSD — to build high-performance systems for graph computing, machine learning, computational omics, numerical simulation and cloud computing.

His representative publications appear in top tier conferences, such as, FAST '18, FAST ’17, SIGMOD ’16 and SC ’15. Particularly, his graph traversal systems are ranked highly in both Graph500 and Green Graph500 benchmarks, which measure the performance and energy efficiency of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. Dr. Liu serves as a member of the program committees (PC) for several major conferences, i.e., IPDPS ’18, HPDC '18, ASPLOS ’18 (shadow PC) and Eurosys ’17 (shadow PC).

Dr. Liu received his Ph.D. degree from George Washington University (Advisor: Howie H. Huang) and bachelor degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China.
