I am currently an Assistant Professor at Department of Mathematics, Lehigh University.

My research concerns topics in the areas of numerical analysis, scientific computing and high performance computing, where I work on the development of novel numerical tools for models with background in science, engineering and biomedicine. I am particularly interested in applying the mathematical analysis knowledges in the design and analysis of efficient and stable numerical schemes for multiscale/multiphysics problems.

Research Interests

Recently, I have been working on developing a systematic unifying mathematical framework and the corresponding computational tool coupling the blood flows and the damaged soft tissues, with the target to improve the existing knowledge on the mechanism of brain aneurysm rupture and prosthetic heart valves failure. Moreover, stability and accuracy issues appear while developing the coupling strategies for this multiscale/multiphysics framework, and I develop novel mathematical analysis to guide the model/algorithm designs.

Specifically, my research interests include:

High-Order Finite Element Methods
- Spectral Element Methods
- Isogeometric Analysis (IGA)
Multiscale/Multiphysics Coupling Strategies
- Fluid--Structure Interaction
- Concurrent Coupling Framework for Local-Nonlocal Problems
- Peridynamic Models
Biomedical Applications
- Brain Aneurysm
- Bioprosthetic Heart Valves
