She is deeply committed to this field, with an emphasis on the democratic values of the administrative state and the impact it can have on societies and citizens. Specifically, her research considers how gender plays a decisive role in public administration and explores how issues of representation, diversity, and gender equity shape the policies and practices of governments and nonprofit organizations.

Liu is a third-year doctoral student in the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers University–Newark. She received her master's in public management from Wuhan University and bachelor's degrees from Huazhong University of Science & Technology in China.
