Dr. Liu is an environmental and resource economist with a focus in transportation economics. Her interdisciplinary research interests include the economics of alternative energy sources, linkages between transportation choices and environmental issues, the effects of physical infrastructure networks and social networks on the adoption of transportation technologies, and technology adoption and its effects on climate change, particularly within the urban and development contexts. 


Dr. Liu enjoys travelling and experiencing food and culture around the world, and has visited more than 20 countries. On a sunny Oregon weekend, you will probably find her hiking up high in the Mt. Hood Wilderness area or camped out in a national park somewhere.
