- Assistant Professor, Mathematical Sciences
- PhD. in Mathematics (University of Delaware)
I obtained my BS in mathematics education at Southwest University in Chongqing, and a MS in mathematics at Shanghai Jiaotong University. From there I moved to the University of Delaware where I obtained my PhD in mathematics under the guidance of Prof. Qing Xiang. After having held positions at Ohio University and Otterbein University I joined Michigan Tech in the Fall of 2012.
