I earned my B.S. in Computational Mathematics from Nanjing University
and my Ph.D in Applied Mathematics from Florida State University
. I worked 2 years (1998-2000) at ICES
of University of Texas at Austin before I moved to UNLV in 2000.
I was summer faculty researcher at U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory
from 2003-2006. During August 2008 - July 2009, I
served as Associate Director
for the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) at UCLA.
Since July 2010, I've been a Full Professor of Mathematics at UNLV.
I am very interested in multidisciplinary research related to numerical analysis and scientific computating.
My major research areas are on numerical methods (mainly FEM) for PDEs from different
disciplinaries. Work include singularly perturbed problems, surface and groundwater modeling, parallel computing with MPI and C++, image processing, radial basis meshless methods, inverse problems, high-order compact difference schemes, Maxwell's equations in metamaterials.
My research has been supported by Air Force, NSF, NSF EPSCoR, and NASA EPSCoR.
