About Me

Ph.D. in physics, Columbia University in the city of New York.

B.A. in Physics, National Taiwan University

Huey-Wen Lin is Assistant Professor in the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering; and in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Michigan State University. She has an h-index of 34, including 2 book publications, and has presented invited talks at conferences and workshops around the world. She organized a summer school for lattice QCD, as well as programs and workshops for several subfields of physics. She often serves as conveners for a wide range of international conferences, and recently served as a panelist at the recent US Department of Energy Exascale Requirements Review for Nuclear Physics.

From 1999 to 2000, she was a lecturer at National Taiwan University in Taipei. From 2006 to 2009, she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Theory Group at Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory in Newport News, VA. She generated special ensembles of QCD vacuum and was involved in developing a novel technique, constructing hundreds of complicated lattice operators to study excited baryon states. From 2009 to 2014, she was a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Washington, Seattle, where she worked on hadron-hadron interactions and nuclear properties, and started a new collaboration, Precision Neutron-Decay Matrix Elements (PDNME), for precision lattice-QCD study of nucleon properties for new-physics searches. From 2015 to July 2016, she was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics at University of California, Berkeley, where she developed the breakthrough work directly calculating the Bjorken-x dependence of the parton distribution functions on the lattice.
