ICERM Postdocs


Postdoctoral Fellows - Fall 2017
Photo Mario J. Bencomo received his Ph.D. from the Department of Computational and Applied Mathematics at Rice University under the direction of his advisor Dr. William W. Symes. His research interests include mathematical methods for inverse problems related to exploration seismology, in particular, the representation and estimation of seismic sources via multipoles. Dr. Bencomo will be at ICERM from September 2017 through May 2018 as an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow.
Photo Wei Li completed her Ph.D. in Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics at the University of Michigan in 2016 under the supervision of Drs. Liliana Borcea and John Schotland. Her research interests are wave propagation in random media, linear and nonlinear optics and inverse problems. Dr. Li will be at ICERM from September 2017 to December 2017 as a Semester Postdoctoral Fellow.
Photo Shixu Meng earned his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Dr. Fioralba Cakoni (currently at Rutgers) and Dr. David Colton at the University of Delaware in 2016. His research interests are wave propagation and inverse problems. During 2016 – 2017 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications at the University of Minnesota. He will be an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan starting in 2017. During Fall 2017 he will be at ICERM as a Semester Postdoctoral Fellow. After his appointment at ICERM he will resume his position at the University of Michigan.
Photo Wei-Hsuan Yu completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Maryland College Park under the supervision of Drs. Alexander Barg and John Benedetto. Dr. Yu’s research interests are discrete geometry, spherical few-distance sets, spherical designs and equiangular lines. Dr. Yu will be at ICERM from September 2017 to May 2018 as an Institute Postdoctoral Fellow.
Photo Yimin Zhong completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics at University of Texas at Austin under supervision of Dr. Kui Ren. Dr. Zhong’s research interests are numerical analysis, inverse problems in imaging with multi-physics, fast algorithms. He will be at ICERM from September 2017 to December 2017 as Semester Postdoctoral Fellow.
