## Research

My research interests are in numerical analysis, scientific computing (sequential and parallel), methods for interface problems in materials and fluids, Hele-Shaw flow, computational fluid mechanics, and tumor growth.

## Personal information

Currently I’m an associate professor at Center for Mathematical Sciences at Huazhong University of Science and Technology. I received my PhD from the Illinois Institute of Technology on 2017. My advisor was Professor Shuwang Li. From 2017 to 2021, I was a postdoc in the Department of Mathematics at University of California Irvine.
