Jie Shen

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Jie Shen (沈捷,born 1959) is an American-Chinese mathematician. He is currently Professor at the Center for Computational and Applied Mathematic at the Department of Mathematics at Purdue University.[1] He is known for his work in algorithm development and analysis for spectral methods, incompressible flows and phase-field models.

Academic Biography[edit]

Shen received his bachelor's degree in Computational Mathematics from the Peking University in 1982, his PhD degree in Mathematics from the Paris-Sud University in 1987. He was a postdoc/visiting assistant professor at Indiana University from 19887 to 1991. He joined Penn State University in 1991, rising through the ranks to Full Professor in 2001, and stayed at University of Central Florida for the academic year 2001-2002 before joining Purdue University in Fall 2002. Since Jan. 2012 he serves as the Director of Center for Computational and Applied Mathematics[2] at Purdue University.

Research Interests and Contributions[edit]

Shen's main research interests are:

  • numerical analysis,
  • spectral methods,
  • scientific computing with applications in computational fluid dynamics and materials science.

He serves on editorial boards of several leading international research journals. He is a highly cited author with over 200 peer-reviewed research articles[3] and co-authored two books:

Spectral and High-Order Methods with Applications[4] (by Jie Shen and Tao Tang, Science Press of China, 2006); Spectral Methods: Algorithms, Analysis and Applications[5] (Springer Series in Computational Mathematics, V. 41) (by Jie Shen, Tao Tang and Li-Lian Wang, Springer, Aug. 2011).

Awards and Honors[edit]

He is a recipient of the Fulbright Award (Visiting Chair in Computational Methods for Partial Differential Equations at McGill University) in 2008 [6] and of the Inaugural Research Award of the College of Science at Purdue University in 2013.[7] He is an elected Fellow of American Mathematical Society (class of 2017) for "contributions to theoretical numerical analysis, scientific computing, computational fluid dynamics and computational materials science",[8] and an elected Fellow of Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (class of 2020) for "fundamental contributions to spectral methods and applications, including pioneering algorithms in computational fluids dynamics and materials science".
