Jason Liu is currently an associate professor at Florida International University. He received a B.A. in computer science from Beijing University of Technology in China in 1993, an M.S. in Computer Science from College of William and Mary in 2000, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Dartmouth College in 2003. His research interests include parallel discrete-event simulation, high-performance modeling and simulation of communication networks and computer systems. His current research focuses on applying real-time computation techniques for adaptive network simulation modeling, designing and building scalable emulation infrastructure for large-scale network experiments. Dr. Liu currently serves as a steering committee member for the PADS conference and as an associate editor for the SIMULATIONS journal. He was the general chair for MASCOTS’10 and SIMUTools’11, and the program chair for SIMUTools’10 and PADS’08. He served on the technical committees for many conferences. In 2006, he received an NSF CAREER Award.
