毕业于山东农业大学（学士），美国弗吉尼亚理工大学(Virginia Tech)（硕士)，美国佐治亚大学（University of Georgia)大学（博士），并在佐治亚大学和美国佛罗立达大学(University of Florida)从事博士后研究多年。此后，在美国Texas A&M University昆虫学系任助理教授（1996），副教授（2000）和正教授（2004）。2009年起任西北农林科技大学植物保护学院教授。
在美国学习工作25年，主要从事农作物和蔬菜害虫的综合治理、害虫生物防治的基础和应用、害虫的环境控制、昆虫生态学、化学生态学、昆虫植物的关系、昆虫行为、害虫物理防治、害虫持续治理和农业持续发展、生物适应与生物资源利用、害虫的种群发展和扩张等方面的工作，近几年着重于害虫-天敌-作物相互关系，寄生性-捕食性天敌-害虫-植物的相互关系，低-无毒农药和低投入害虫治理，生物和环境友好害虫治理。首次提出了害虫治理新概念“Biorational Control”，并已经获得国内外学术界广泛认可；首次提出”Sustainable pest biological control in ephemeral habitats”（短生作物害虫可持续生物防治), 其理论正在实践中验证和完善。

Professor Dr. Tong-Xian Liu, known as “T.-X.” is the National Distinguished Professor of Entomology. He was elected as Fellow of Entomological Society of America in 2014. He was the Dean of the College of Plant Protection, Northwest A&F University. Currently, he is a professor and Dean of the College of Plant Health and Medicine, Qingdao Agricultural University.
He is internationally recognized for his research in biological control and tritrophic interactions of host plants, whiteflies, and aphids, and their natural enemies. His main research focuses on biological control, biorational control, insect ecology, chemical ecology, tritrophic interactions of insect-plant-natural enemies, and low input and environmental friendly pest management. He also develops biorational and Integrated Pest Management approaches for managing insect pests of important crops, including field crops and vegetables.
He obtained his BS degree in plant protection from Shandong Agricultural University in China. He completed his MS degree in entomology from Virginia Tech at Blacksburg, Virginia in one and half years (1986-1987). Then, he obtained his PhD in entomology from the University of Georgia (Athens) in 1982. He spent four years as a post-doc at the University of Florida. He had joined Texas A&M in 1997 as an Assistant Professor working on vegetable IPM, and was then promoted to Associate Professor in 2001 and Full Professor in 2005, respectively.
He has been a member of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) for more than 30 years, and served in several capacities including the President of the International Branch of ESA in 2013. He has received numerous awards in various institutions and societies. Dr. Liu has been very active in teaching, supervising more than 50 doctoral students, 15 post-doctoral research associates, 30 MS students and 25 visiting scientists. He has acquired over $6.5 m and ￥13 m in grants and contracts from various funding agencies in the US and China. Dr. Liu has published more than 310 refereed journal articles (265 SCI papers) in various journals, including Annual Review of Entomology, Scientific Reports, Frontiers in Physiology, BioOpen, PLoS ONE, Planta, BioControl, Biological Control, Journal of Experimental Botany, and many others. He also edited 4 books, published more than 200 educational and extension papers, and has been invited to give over 100 speeches and seminars at many national and international institutions and conferences. His publications have been cited extensively, and his H-index is 41, i10-index is 153, and total citations are more than 5700 (updated: June 10, 2018).
