Alumnus Peng Qiu (Ph.D. EE, 2007), has received tenure as an Associate Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he teaches in the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.  He joined the Georgia Tech faculty in 2013 after holding a faculty position at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for three years.  His research interests are in bioinformatics and computational biology, focusing on machine learning, visualization, signal processing, systems modeling and network analysis. Qiu won a 2016 NSF CAREER Award for “Experimental Design and Model Reduction in Systems Biology.”

He was advised by Christine Kim Eminent Professor of Information Technology K.J. Ray Liu at the University of Maryland.  Qiu graduated with a Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, completing his studies in 2007. 

“Looking back on my journey, I’d like to thank Dr. Liu for introducing me to my current research direction, and I thank him for his excellent mentoring and training,” said Qiu. “The four years at the University of Maryland has been one of the biggest contributing factors that has allowed me to reach where I am right now, and I am very grateful for that.”
