I have a particular interest in teaching the introductory computer
science courses for the lower division students to arouse their academic
interest to computer science, and also to learn essential and practical
computing skills and technologies. In these courses, I focus on the foundations
of information and computation, and of practical techniques for
implementation and application in computer systems.
Of course, I am also enthusiastic in teaching other computer science core
courses, including computer graphics, numerical analysis, scientific and
parallel computing, computational geometry, as well as logic and
related discrete mathematics topics.
My goal in any course I undertake would be to put into practice the
methodologies described in my teaching principle, while ensuring a strong
integration with the curriculum of the computer science department as a whole.
My research work focuses on software environment and scientific
computing. Specifically, I have been developing preconditioning algorithms and
software packages for both parallel and uniprocessor systems. Thus far, my
research program has been exciting and rewarding. I hope to continue pursuing
general research in software environment, scientific computing, parallel
computing, and high performance scientific computing.
My research has fit well with other areas as I have significant collaborative
experience with the researchers in computer vision. The collaboration enriches
my research program and leads to new ideas and results. These research
directions are adaptable to provide students a variety of research
opportunities while also complementing the existing research strengths of the
