Dr. Liu’s research focuses on understanding how personal and workplace factors influence people’s ability to adjust to employment-related challenges. In particular, he is interested in how people adjust to situations that involve either dramatic (e.g., school-to-work transition and job loss) or subtle changes (e.g., ebbs and flows in work demands and family demands) and yet maintain their productivity and well-being. He uses various methodology (e.g., daily diary design, longitudinal panel design, mixture modeling, and meta-analysis) in his studies. His publications and ongoing research are in three related areas: 1) job search and employment, 2) organizational newcomer adaptation, and 3) temporal-based work-related stress and coping process.
