After earning an M.Phil. from Cambridge University in Archaeology & Anthropology, Liu received her Ph.D. in Chinese art and archaeology from the University of London (SOAS). Her research focuses on the Tang dynasty (618-907 CE), especially imperial tombs near Xi'an and Luoyang. After receiving funding from the T'ang Society, she has conducted GIS mapping at Zhaoling, a 7km. wide, with more than 200 accompanying tombs, imperial mausoleum complex of the Emperor Taizong (598-649 CE). At Princeton, she has taught a graduate seminar on “Reading Tombs in Ancient China” and led field trips for both undergraduates and graduate students to museums far and near.

Before coming to Princeton, Liu was Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow of East Asian Art and Archaeology at New York University and Visiting Professor at Hunter College. She was also the Research Associate (and contributor) for the special exhibition “China: Dawn of a Golden Age (200-750 AD)” at The Met and a researcher for the WWII provenance of Asian art at the Smithsonian.
