Weinan Wang

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.

My research interests lie in the area of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) and their applications.
