Dr. Prof. Wenzhong Liu joined the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) In 2000. In 2005-2006, he visited TU Braunschweig, Germany as a visiting scientist. He became a full professor in 2011, where he is currently Chair of the Department of Measurement Science and Instruments, School of Artificial Intelligence and Automation, HUST.
Dr. Liu earned his B.S., M.S. degrees and Ph. D. from HUST, Department of Control Science and Engineering in 1997, 2000 and 2004 respectively. He specializes in weak signal detecting, focusing on issues related to characterization of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP), temperature pulse detection and temperature imaging using MNP. His current research interests include non-invasive temperature estimation and imaging using MNP, real-time and on-site magnetic immunoassay for COVID-19 utilizing MNP. Dr. Prof. Liu has published articles in numerous scholarly outlets and authors for 20 Chinese patents, 5 US patents.
