I was born in Jindezhen, China and graduated from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. I got my Ph.D. in Mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, working with Professor Yakov Pesin. I was a postdoc at University of Maryland and a Fields-Ontario postdoc at University of Toronto.
My main research interest is dynamical systems, which is a vibrant and diverse field that evolves around certain central ideas. Currently, I am interested in the following list of topics, all connected to the central idea of variational methods in Hamiltonian systems:
I also work in smooth dynamics and thermodynamic formalism.
The most recent graduate course I taught was MAT1845 (Dynamical systems). For current undergraduate teaching at UTM, please use Portal.
