Guangzhou, China (January 2018)
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).
- April 2018: I gave a talk at the math department seminar at Colgate University: "Fast algorithms for large and dense matrices with applications in biofluid" (joint work with Sarah Olson).
- April 2018: I received a CUSE Grant.
I am grateful for the generous support from Syracuse University.
- Project title: Fast Algorithms for Simulating the Collective Swimming of Microorganisms
- Date: May 1, 2018 to April 30, 2020.
- April 2018: I gave a talk at the Scientific Computing and Numerics seminar at Cornell University: "Robust linear stability analysis". (Most of the work presented is joint with Fei Xue.)
- April 2018: I gave a talk at Advancing Women's Impact in Mathematics Symposium at WPI: "Fast algorithms for the dense matrices arising from the method of regularized Stokeslets" (joint work with Sarah Olson).
- March 2018: I gave two talks at the Copper Mountain Conference on Iterative Methods: "Robust computation of the right-most eigenvalues (joint work with Fei Xue) and "Fast algorithms for the dense matrices arising from the method of regularized Stokeslets" (joint work with Sarah Olson).
- January 2018: I am one of the two nominees of Syracuse University for the Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Awards . I am grateful for the nomination and endorsement of my department and the university.
- 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.
