Weinan Wang

Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Arizona.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Igor Kukavica at the University of Southern California (USC) in August 2020 and I am currently working with Prof. Chris Henderson as a postdoc at the University of Arizona. Here is my CV (update: Nov. 5th).

Research interests: kinetic theory, fluid dynamics, mathematical biology, electro-chemistry, and unique continuation.

I am on the job market this year!
