    About Me


    Ph.D. Mathematics, University of Washington, 2014.

    Advisor(s): Prof. Gunther Uhlmann

    B.S. Mathematics, Zhejiang University in China, 2009.



    Yang received his Ph.D. in 2014 from the Department of Mathematics, University of Washington under Prof. Gunther Uhlmann, and his B.S. in 2009 from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China.

    After recieving his Ph.D in 2014 Yang went to the Department of Mathematics at Purdue University as a Golomb Visiting Assistant Professor working with Prof. Plamen Stefanov

    As of 2017, Yang has joined the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering at Michigan State University as an Assistant Professor.

    Research Interests

    •    Coupled Physics Inverse Problems

    •    Inverse Problems in Lorentzian Geometry

    •    Inverse Boundary Value Problems

    Postdoc Positions
    Inverse Problems and Imaging Group

    Postdoc position open in the field of inverse problems and imaging interpreted in the broad sense. These include, but not limited to, medical/radar/seismic imaging, image processing, data-driven inverse problems, and so forth. Candidates are expected to have expertise in one or more of the following areas: theoretical and computational partial differential equations, microlocal analysis, stochastic partial differential equations, statistical methods in inverse problems, optimization, numerical simulations. Proficient programming skill is strongly recommended. Successful applications should be well motivated, have strong written and oral communication skills, and be able to conduct research of high quality both independently and collaboratively. The selected candidate will join the Inverse Problems and Imaging group at CMSE and collaborate with Dr. Yang as well as other faculty members and graduate students.
