Dr. Liu investigates the distributions and determinants of health outcomes in human populations. Her research interests include studying epidemiological patterns, such as geospatial and disparity patterns of health outcomes, and the health effects of environmental and occupational exposures under normal conditions and post natural/man-made disasters.  She applies epidemiological and statistical approaches to large databases, such as survey data, healthcare administrative data, cancer registry data, census data, as well as environmental pollution data, to determine how factors at personal level and area level impact people’s health and their healthcare utilization.
