Postgraduate Opportunities

I am currently looking for MPhil and Ph.D. students or visiting students for conducting research in following directions: approximation and learning theory, computational statistics and data science, numerical linear algebra, matrix theory and high performance computing.

Multiple opportunities are available both in research centers for mathematics at Beijing Normal University Zhuhai and DST at UIC.  Candidates can either choose the mathematics direction or the computer/data science direction based on their own background. Interested students are encouraged to contact me for more details.
