As an emerging engineering program, Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) has seen a significant growth in the past twenty years. With tens of thousands of researchers and practitioners worldwide, nowadays, the applications for PHM are very broad encompassing aerospace, energy, manufacturing, defense, civil, automotive, transportation, communication, and health care. PHM methodologies possess a good potential in providing effective means for reduction in cost associated with maintenance of complex systems, equipment, or facilities through accurate assessment of incipient damages and/or reliable prediction of remaining useful life at both component and system levels.

Dr. Jie (Peter) Liu is a Full Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. He completed his B.Eng. in Electronics and Precision Engineering at Tianjin University (China) in 1998, his M.Sc. in Control Engineering at Lakehead University in 2005, and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 2008. He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley in 2008-2010.

Dr. Liu is leading international research efforts in Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) with applications to several engineering systems including gas turbine engines for power generation, lithium ion batteries for energy storage, and mechanical power transmissions. His research contributions have led to 56 journal papers and 36 conference papers. Several of his research works were considered as seminal/pioneering ones in the field (refer to ‘Featured Papers‘ in Publications Section) and the total citations are over 5000 (Google Scholar) with highest impact factor 39.714 (Energy & Environmental Science). He was identified as one of the World’s Top 2% Most-Cited Scientists (2022 Stanford-Elsevier List of the World’s Most-Cited Scholars).

Dr. Liu was the recipient of Carleton University Research Achievement Award (2017), IEEE Ottawa Section Outstanding Service Award (2017), France-Canada Research Award (2013-2015), NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship (2008-2010), NSERC Postgraduate Scholarship (2005-2008), and Governor General’s Gold Medal of Canada (2006).

Dr. Liu served as Editor-in-Chief for Journal of Prognostics and Health Management (2020-present), the Senator of Carleton University (2017-2020), the IEEE Reliability Society Administrative Committee Member (2018-2020), Interim Vice President of IEEE Reliability Society (2019), the Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Reliability (2016-2020), the Editorial Board Member of Chinese Journal of Aeronautics (Elsevier) since 2013, and the Editorial Board Member of Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering (Springer) since 2018. He also served as the General Chair for 2017 SDPC Conference in Shanghai, 2018 IEEE PHM Conference in Seattle, 2019 PHM China Conference in Chongqing, 2019 IEEE PHM Conference in San Francisco, and 2019 PHM Europe Conference in Paris. He is a Fellow of IET, a Senior Member of IEEE, and a Professional Engineer of Ontario.
