Dr. Liu is mainly interested in coastline change and dynamic processes on the coast development, sea-level change and paleocoastline evolution by remote sensing and GIS. She employed especially herself in detecting coastline change and SSC by optical remote sensing, estimating the hydrodynamic process in the coastal water and probing the sedimentary strata by GPR.
