Biography

Dr. Jun Liu is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at The Ohio State University. Her research interest is in tissue biomechanics and ultrasound imaging. Her laboratory has developed high-performance ultrasound elastography and imaging methods to characterize complex 3D biomechanical responses of ocular tissue aiming to improve diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases such as keratoconus and glaucoma. Dr. Liu has been a Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator for NIH-funded projects to develop innovative methods for characterizing ocular biomechanics in vivo and investigating their roles in ocular pathophysiology. She collaborates with researchers in Ophthalmology, Optometry, Veterinary Medicine, Neuroscience, and Bioinformatics. She has a courtesy appointment in Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, and graduate faculty status in College of Optometry and Biophysics Interdisciplinary Program. She has been a research adviser for postdocs, PhD/MS students, medical students, and undergraduate students; and a mentor for junior faculty at OSU and other institutes. Dr. Liu teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in BME. She is currently the Director of Graduate Studies at BME.
