Richard Lieu is Professor of Physics at the University of Alabama, Huntsville.His degrees of higher learning were all obtained at Imperial College London, with BSc, DIC in Physics, and PhD in X-ray astronomy.In 1981 he joined the University of Calgary (Canada) as a Postdoctoral Fellow, and in 1985 returned to Imperial College to work on the EUV camera aboard ROSAT.In 1991 he became part of the EUVE team at UC Berkeley, and in 1995 came to Huntsville as Faculty.Lieu worked on many areas (theoretical and observational) of high energy astrophysics, including the quantum electrodynamics of strong (pulsar) magnetic fields, acceleration of cosmic rays in relativistic shocks, and the first EUVE source catalog.
His most notable achievement is the discovery in 1995 of a new (soft X-ray and EUV) emission component in clusters of galaxies - a result which was subsequently confirmed by several satellite missions, including the recent XMM Newton observations which provided the clincher evidence that the originally detected signals are real.Recently Lieu's attention was directed at testing General Relativity and quantum gravity by means of the wealth of existing data from many astronomy missions.His findings are published (or about to appear) in five Astrophysical Journal papers..

Results of this research by Dr. Richard Lieu, a UAH physics professor, and Dr. Jonathan Mittaz, a UAH research associate, were published Monday in the "Astrophysical Journal."

...
Proving Einstein right might become a problem for the standard cosmological model of how the universe was formed because Einstein's theory also predicts that the cosmic microwave background shouldn't look the way it does, according to Lieu.
The problem, he says, is that cool spots in the microwave background are too uniform in size to have traveled across almost 14 billion light years from the edges of the universe to Earth.
"Einstein's theory of how gravity attracts light, coupled with the uneven distribution of matter in the near universe, says you should have a spread of sizes around the average, with some of these cool spots noticeably larger and others noticeably smaller," he said.
