My academic forefathers dating back ten generations include: Carl Friedrich Gauss → Johann Franz Encke → Karl Christian Bruhns → Hugo von Seeliger → Gustav Herglotz and Ludwig Otto Hölder → Emil Artin → Nesmith Ankeny (Princeton University) → John Sollion Hsia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) → Wai Kiu Chan (Ohio State University) → Jingbo Liu (Wesleyan University)
Dr. Liu received her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT in 2016 and held a two-year post-doctoral scholar position at University of Hong Kong before joining A&M-SA in 2018 for family reunion. She has visited MSRI at University of California, Berkeley, Banff International Research Station at Canada, La Trobe University, Australia, Seoul National University, South Korea, and Imperial College London, UK etc.
Dr. Liu has conducted research mainly in quadratic and Hermitian forms/lattices and applications to lattice-based cryptography; her recent research appeared in Bulletin des Sciences Mathématiques, International Mathematics Research Notices IMRN, Journal of Algebra, Journal of Number Theory, and Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, all of which are top-tier journals in the field.
Dr. Liu has presented at the Association for Women in Mathematics research symposia at University of California, Los Angeles and Texas A&M University, and at conferences hosted/organized by the American Mathematical Society, Imperial College London, UK, Louisiana State University, Seoul National University, South Korea, Tufts University, University of Hong Kong, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of Sydney, Australia, and Wake Forest University etc.
Dr. Liu has taught various undergraduate courses in the U.S. both at Wesleyan and A&M-SA including college algebra, pre-calculus, differential calculus, integral calculus, discrete mathematics, linear algebra, mathematical structures and proofs, probability, and modern algebra, and truly enjoys mathematics teaching. She has also taught a business related statistics course many years ago at Shandong University, China.
As dedicated to excellence in educating particularly the first-generation students, she is very interested in directing rigorous undergraduate research projects that lead to good publications*. One of her undergraduate mentees presented the work 3 below both at MAA MathFest 2021 and JMM AMS-PME 2022.
Dr. Liu has served as the single PI and sole director for an MAA-NREUP funded by NSF between June and August 2023 on a probabilistic/statistical study of the parameter α in the LLL-algorithm regarding some intrinsic quantities of a lattice. Her mentees have presented their joint research findings at MAA MathFest 2023 and will present a refined work at the forthcoming JMM AMS-PME 2024; all associated travels are financially supported by NSF via AMS/MAA.
