*Bio:*

Yingda Cheng received her B.S. from the University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, China, in 2003, and her M.S. and Ph.D. for Applied Mathematics in 2004 and 2007, respectively, from Brown University.

From 2007 to 2011, Yingda was a postdoc at the University of Texas at Austin, where she was mentored by Irene M. Gamba. In 2011 Yingda came to Michigan State University as an Assitant Professor at the Department of Mathematics until 2016. During her time here, Yingda recieved a NSF CAREER Award in 2015 for her work in the design and analysis of discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods. In 2016, Yingda became an Associate Professor with the Department of Mathematics at Michigan State Univeristy.

As of 2017, Yingda has also joined the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering at Michigan State University.
