About me

Welcome to my homepage. I am an applied and computational mathematician and currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Lowell

I am working on several projects:

  • Parallel fast integral equation solver for 3-D multi-layered media using the Fast Multipole Method (FMM) (Please visit this website to see what is the FMM and who is working on) and treecodes.

  • Periodizing scheme with boundary integral equations for patterned multi-layer dielectric media (Scattering from 1000 layers shown on the right. Click the figure to see the high resolution version).

  • Volume integral equations for Maxwell's equations.

  • My advisor's (Prof. Wei Cai) book on computational methods is available on Amazon. Click the cover (I drew the graph) to see the table of contents, preface, and reviews
My publications and recent presentations are listed below. Please email me if there are any comments or questions.
