Dr. Dong Liu, male, was born in Anhui Province in 1977. He graduated from Anhui Normal University and obtained bachelor degree of science in 1998. In 2001 and 2005, he obtained master and doctor degrees from Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, respectively. From Sep. 2006 to Aug. 2009, he worked at Atmosphere Science Department, University of Wyoming, USA as postdoctoral researcher. Since Sep. 2009, he worked in AIOFM and was promoted to professor in 2015. Now he is the vice director of Center for Atmospheric Optics, AIOFM, CAS.
His research area includes lidar technology and laser remote sensing of the atmosphere. As a principal investigator, he has developed polarization lidar, multi-wavelength Raman lidar and airborne dual wavelength lidar. These lidar systems have been successfully used to long-term observations of aerosol extinction, depolarization ratio of Asian dust, aerosol microphysics retrievals and airborne filed campaign. His research area also includes space borne lidar data analysis and application. He depicted the first 3D global dust aerosol distribution based on the depolarization CALIOP lidar data. His projects supported by NSFC, 973, 863 and other funding from Chinese Academy of Sciences. His group also actively joints many international cooperative project, such as AD-Net, SKYNET, ACE-Asia and ADEC etc.
