“Aviation has been my passion starting at a very early stage.”
Hugh H.T. Liu

What aspects of transportation does your research address?
My research area is in aircraft technology. I have been working on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in recent years. In that sense, my research area connecting to transportation is from ‘air transportation’ or ‘aviation transportation’ perspective.

What other important aspects of transportation does it connect to?
Air transportation is highly integrated with ground transportation, or transportation in general. The emerging advancement of UAVs (drones) technology makes it possible to explore novel ways of transportation research and study, e.g., traffic management, autonomous transportation. Click here to continue reading UTTRI Faculty Snapshot of Professor Hugh H.T.
