This fall, we have welcomed Dr. Min Hyung Cho to the UML Department of Mathematical Sciences. Min Hyung is an applied mathematician who was most recently atDartmouth College. He holds a Ph. D. from TheUniversity of North Carolina at Charlotte, where his advisor was Prof. Wei Cai. The title of his dissertation was ‘Fast Integral Methods in Layered Media with Application in Photonic Devices.’

Dr. Cho’s research interests include

- Computational Mathematics
- Numerical solutions of PDEs
- Fast Multipole Method (FMM) and treecodes
- Wave propagation in layered media
- High Performance Computing
