Xiangmin (Jim) Jiao
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
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.
