Ph.D., Mathematics, University of Minnesota, USA, 1985.

B.S., Mathematics, Zhejiang University, China, 1981.

My research interests are in nonlinear partial differential equations, geometric measure theory and geometric & applied analysis. Recent researches are concentrated mainly on the analysis of classical and complex fluids including liquid crystals, the theory of homogenizations and geometric variational problems.
