Weifeng Liu is currently a Full Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Technology of the China University of Petroleum, Beijing, China. Formerly, he was a Marie Curie Fellow at the Department of Computer Science of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. He received his PhD in 2016 from the Niels Bohr Institute of the University of Copenhagen under advisor Brian Vinter. He has been shortly working as a Research Associate with Iain S. Duff at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in 2016. He also has been working as a Senior Researcher in high performance computing technology at the SINOPEC Exploration and Production Research Institute for about six years (2006-2012). He received his BE and ME degrees in computer science, both from the China University of Petroleum, Beijing, in 2002 and 2006, respectively.

He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Member of the ACM and the SIAM.

His research interests include numerical linear algebra and parallel computing, particularly in designing parallel and scalable algorithms and data structures for sparse matrix computations on throughput-oriented architectures. His algorithms run on a variety of manycore devices and single-chip CPU-GPU heterogeneous processors.
