I am a postdoc at the University of Minnesota, working with Prof. Douglas Arnold. I obtained my degree in 2017 from Peking University, China under the supervision of Prof. Jinchao Xu. Before I moved to Minneapolis, I worked at the University of Oslo, Norway with Prof. Ragnar Winther and Prof. Snorre Christiansen.
My research is focused on applied and computational mathematics. In particular, I work on general theories of structure-preserving discretization and computational problems in mechanics, physics and geometry. To investigate and preserve the structures of physical systems, my work also involves applied analysis, topology and geometric mechanics with an emphasis on their connections to numerical analysis and computation. A large part of my current research is on the finite element exterior calculus (FEEC). I am involved in the Simons Collaboration exploring localization of waves. My research in this direction involves numerical analysis and computation of spectrum and eigenmodes, particularly for quantum systems. |
