Adrian Liu

Adrian Liu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and the Trottier Space Institute at McGill University. He is a William Dawson Scholar, a CIFAR Azireli Global Scholar, and a Sloan Research Fellow. He was the winner of the 2020 John David Jackson Teaching Award in the Department of Physics at McGill University. Prior to his current appointment, he was a Hubble Fellow at UC Berkeley. His research is focused on the development of 21cm cosmology as a technique for performing unprecedentedly large surveys of our Universe. This enormous amount of data resulting from such surveys provides a series of challenging problems in data-driven astronomy, which his research group tackles using traditional statistical methods as well as machine learning.
