Jinjin Liang



I am a graduate student at Department of Mathematics, University of Arizona. My dissertation advisor is  Prof. Dave Glickenstein.

My research focuses on geometric analysis, calculus of variations, and nonlinear partial differential equations, with a primary focus on variational methods in geometric problems.
