Dr. Jiao received his B.S. in 1995 from
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. Research
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. Visit his
