Xiangmin 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 a Visiting 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 (formerly the New York Center of Computational Science).
Xiangmin 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 dynamic surfaces, mesh optimization, applied computational and differential geometry, and multiphysics coupling, for applications involving heterogeneous physical systems, such as simulations in computational fluid dynamics, biomedical engineering, climate modeling, and geometric modeling.
