Research Interests:

* Uncertainty Quantification:  "uncertainty is everywhere",  UQ aims to include uncertainty in mathematical models and quantify its effect on output of interest used in decision making.  UQ has a variety of applications, including hydrology, fluid mechanics, data assimilation, and weather forecasting.   I study this topic with collaborators including: Akil Narayan (Utah),  Fabio Nobile (EPFL),  John Jakeman (Sandia),  Tao Tang (SUSTech),  Zhiqiang Xu (CAS). In case you are interested in this topic, you are welcome to take a look at my review paper (PDF in Chinese), which is dedicated to Prof. Qun Lin's  80th birthday.

* Forward backward stochastic differential equations (FBSDEs): which have comprehensive applications in stochastic optimal control, computational finance, nonlinear filtering, etc.   I study this topic with  Wenbin Liu (Kent) and  Weidong Zhao (SDU).

* Spectral methods,  Parareal,  Fractional PDEs, Phase field models, etc.
