The Department of Mathematics

University of Maryland at Baltimore County

Baltimore, MD 21250

My research interests are in the area of differential
geometry, general relativity, string theory, compressive sensing, game theory and quantum
computing.

I was a student of Richard Melrose at MIT (Ph.D., 1998). While in grad school, I was also co-advised by Prof. S-T. Yau at Havard University. Before that, I went to college at Duke University where I was a triple major in electrical engineering, computer science and mathematics (class of 93).

This fall (2011), I am teaching Math 221 (section 1):
Linear Algebra. If you have any questions about this class, please
refer to the class blackboard page or simply contact me.

My other (full-time) job is to solve challenging yet interesting problems using mathematics. I am chief scientist at Cyber Operations Branch (VCB) in Applied Information Science Dept. (AISD) of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

My life-time job, however, is to serve God and His purpose for my generation. I attend Worthy Life
Baptist Church located in Baltimore, Md., right outside Johns Hopkins University. If you are interested in checking
out my church, just simply ask ME! :-)
