Hadron Physics and QCD: Supervised dissertations in hadron
physics based on QCD motivated models. In parallel with the heavy ion collision
work, Dr. Chiu was also very involved in QCD related research, especially in
the area of high energy phenomenology based on QCD models and the solution to
the BKequation based on Monte Carlo simulations. During the operiod from 2006 to 2011, he supervised two doctorate
dissertations. .
o The
dissertation of Man Fung Cheung is on “Gluon Propagator in Classical Color Field of Colliding Hadrons and its Implications for Hadronic
Cross Sections”.
o The dissertation of Matt Haley is on
“Traveling Waves and Impact Parameter Correlations in QCD beyond the 1D
Approximation.”

Development of 303LM&I curriculum. see the
overview link (fourth bullet) in http://www.ph.utexas.edu/~itiq/303LMI/chiu/MIcurriculum.html.
§ In the academic year 20092010, Dr.
Chiu pioneered the use of this curriculum at UT in one 303K section in fall09
and in one 303L in spring10.
§ In 20102011 the use of M&I
curriculum was expanded significantly. Professor Harry Swinney
was particularly interested in the use of this new curriculum. In the
subsequent year, the growth of more M&I classes tTwo M&I teaching teams emerged. The 303K team was
supervised by Swinney and the 303L team by Chiu.
§ Since then Dr. Chiu’s attention has been on the further
development of the M&I curriculum in 303L. Since then two new initiatives
have been introduced in 303L.
o
Dr.
Chiu organized the online posting of the clicker questions and the posting of
lecture notes to help to define physics content of the new curriculum
.
o
Dr.
Chiu has also promoted the use of Dr. Elaine Li’s learning module in his
teaching of 303L. The learning model encourages students to preview the physics
content before the lecture and to use student feedback as the main content in
organizing the discussion sessions.
§ Dr. Chiu will be retired in August
31, 2013. He will continue to teach 303L as a halftime faculty member in the
academic year 20132014.
Doctorate and Master students. Dr. Chiu has graduated 9 doctorate
students. Among those, who are presently in academic institutions, are: Xerxes Tata,
Professor at U of Hawaii, Stephen Eubank, Professor at Virginia BioInformatics
Institute on Virginia Tech campus, Silas Beane,
Associate Professor at the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Chiu also graduated
2 master students.
The CUSPEA program: In the
early 1980’s, Dr. Chiu was the departmental coordinator for the CUSPEA
(ChinaUS Exam Program) which facilitated the selection of top Chinese students to pursue their
doctorate program in US. During this period, Dr. Chiu also hosted Professor Dai
Yen Ben, a distinguished member of Chinese Academy of Science who delivered a
lecture series in our department.
