Haitao Liao

Haitao Liao, an assistant professor in the Nuclear Engineering Department and the Industrial and Information Engineering Department, recently received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation for his work entitled “Adaptive Operational Coordination Methodology for Uncertainty Reduction in Product Life Cycle Reliability and Service Logistics.” The CAREER Award is the NSF’s most prestigious award for young faculty members early in their careers.

Liao’s current research efforts focus on accelerated testing, coordination of life cycle reliability and service logistics, applied statistics, renewable energy, and energy saving technologies. His research is funded by the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Hong Kong Research Grant Council, and private industry. He is an assistant area editor of Computers & Industrial Engineering and the author of over 50 peer reviewed publications.

The research of Haitao Liao is featured in the Selected Works Author Gallery of Trace, UT’s digital showcase and archive.
