Dr. Liu was born in upstate New York but grew up mostly in Texas. She went to medical school at UT San Antonio and completed her Internal medicine residency in West Virginia. During residency, she had an interest in Vancomycin nephrotoxicity and its removal through high-flux hemodialysis membranes. She not only presented a case report on the topic at the West Virginia state ACP conference but also at the National ACP conference. She also had an interest in COPD exacerbations and the effects of high versus low dose steroids in intubated patients. She particularly enjoyed her Pulmonary and Critical care rotations in residency. She brings to UT Southwestern a strong focus on patient-centered care. Her interests outside of medicine include reading, running, playing table tennis and badminton, and traveling the world.
