Xiaoling Liu obtained her BSc at Harbin Institute of Technology in 2015. After her graduation, she directly started working on her PhD project on Longitudinally Profiled Steel Plates in the Department of Civil Engineering of Tsinghua University. Besides her doctoral studies, she is a major contributor to a project related to the design of a bolted connection of a main plate girder of boiler power station.


The main focus of Liu's research is on the material properties of longitudinally profiled steel plates, as well as mechanical mechanisms of such members. Theoretical solutions, tests and parameter analysis are part of the work undertaken, with the ultimate goal of proposing design methods for longitudinally profiled steel plates.
