Biographical Info

  • In September 2005, I joined University of California Davis to get a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering. I worked on simulation of unsteady turbulent flows using Galerkin Finite Element and dynamic remeshing under the supervision of Roger Davis. After taking a couple of classes at the Department of Mathematics, I noticed their significant effect on my research and decided to get a Masters degree in Applied Math. In June 2007 I became a double major graduate student. I worked on solution of viscous flow problems using proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and Galerkin projection under the supervision of Roland Freund. After three wonderful years in California, I graduated from UCDavis in June 2008.
