Dr. Jiao received his B.S. in 1995 from Peking University, China, his M.S. in 1997 from University of California Santa Barbara, and his Ph.D. in computer science in 2001 from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). After working in interdisciplinary research for a few years as a Research Scientist at the Center for Simulation of Advanced Rockets (CSAR) at UIUC and then an Assistant Professor in College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology, he joined the faculty of Stony Brook University in Fall 2007. He is now an Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics and is affiliated with the Computer Science Department and the Institute for Advanced Computational Science.

Dr. Jiao's research interests are in high-performance geometric and numerical computing in science and engineering. His work focuses on developing efficient and robust algorithms and high-performance software implementations for applied computational and differential geometry, generalized finite difference and finite element methods, multigrid and iterative methods for sparse linear systems, and multiphysics coupling, with applications in computational fluid dynamics and structural mechanics, biomedical engineering, climate modeling, etc.
