UC Berkeley (October 2014)
I am a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics, Syracuse University, USA. My research interest lies in numerical linear algebra with applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). My PhD advisor is Professor Howard Elman (UMD at College Park) and my postdoc mentor is Professor Sarah Olson (WPI).
- November 2017: I joined the faculty advisory board for the WiSE Women of Color in STEM group .
- October 2017: I started working with undergraduate student Nakira Christmas! We plan to study the flow field induced by a mat of beating cilia. Nakira is a member of the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) research program.
- July 2017: I presented a poster on the same work at the ILAS Meeting.
- July 2017: I gave a talk on my recent work with Fei at the SIAM Annual Meeting.
- May 2017: Fei Xue and I submitted a pretty cool paper to SISC. We propose a robust method for finding the rightmost eigenvalue of a large, sparse matrix.
- May 2017: I received a Simons foundation collaboration grant for mathematicians.
I am grateful for the generous support from the Simons foundation!
- Project title: Fast algorithms for fluid-structure interaction and pseudospectral analysis.
- Date: September 1, 2017 to August 31, 2022.
- February 2017: Undergraduate student Yilei Zhang started an independent study under my guidance. She will learn about the Method of Regularized Stokeslets.
In Fall 2017,
I am teaching MAT 581: Numerical Methods with Programming. In Spring 2018, I am teaching MAT 296: Calculus II and MAT 684: Methods of Numerical Analysis II. All teaching materials for current students are available at Blackboard.
I am also developing a new course MAT 503: Matrix Methods for Data Science.
I co-advised a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) project with Professor Burt Tilley at WPI. The project was sponsored by the National Science Foundation under award DMS-1263127, the Center for Industrial Mathematics and Statistics (CIMS) at WPI and the Northeast Fishery Science Center (NEFSC) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Touring NOAA's survey ship "the Bigelow" in Newport, RI (June 2015)
The four undergraudate students worked on this project were Cody FitzGerald (Univeristy of New Hampshire, now a graduate student at University of Utah), Alexis Gambino (Southern Methodist University), James Keane (University of Central Oklahoma) and China Mauck (Grinnell College, now also a graduate student at University of Utah). A major issue with modeling fish population dynamics is tracking the
movement of multiple species among multiple regions. We explored different veins of models, including data-driven and PDE models.
