Computer & Mathematical Sciences
I graduated from a normal (teacher’s) university in China in the early 1980s and joined the faculty of Shanghai Institute of Education, whose mission is to train secondary school teachers. Seeking new opportunities, I came to the United States in 1984 and enrolled in the graduate program of the mathematics department at Texas Tech University. While in graduate school, I completed over 100 hours of graduate mathematics and worked as teaching and research assistant to enhance my teaching and professional activities. After I received my Ph.D. degree in applied and computational mathematics in 1990, I was very happy to join the faculty of the University of Houston-Downtown. Being an urban open admissions institution, UHD is dedicated to providing students with the curriculum and support services necessary to ensure every opportunity for their academic success. I have consistently made a genuine effort to be dedicated and committed to the mission of the school. I teach a wide range of courses, direct student research in their senior projects, and am heavily involved in a broad range of college service activities. I remain active in the area of research activities through publications and presentations at professional meetings. My work has been published in internationally refereed journals and has been cited by many works in the field. I received the UHD Excellence in Scholarly and Creative Activity Award in 2003. Looking back to my more than twenty-year tenure at UHD, I can say proudly that I have achieved and sustained a record of excellence in teaching, scholarly/creative activities, and service.
