Jue Liu

Harvard University
Mathematics, Physics


Jue Liu comes from China, and he got a Ph.D. degree at Sun Yat-sen University in 2018. His research interests include geometric analysis and mathematical general relativity. He had deep studies in the weak cosmic censorship conjecture, one of the fundamental problems in the dynamics of black holes, and proved that the spherical naked singularities constructed by Christodoulou are unstable even under gravitational perturbations. Recently he is trying to find some physical quantity such as quasilocal mass which is useful to describe the dynamics of spacetime in particular situations. One such example is the Penrose inequality, which can indirectly verify the weak cosmic censorship conjecture from the view of spacelike hypersurfaces embedded in spacetime.
