Brief Introduction of Professor Tao Tang
Tao Tang was born in Shucheng, Anhui. He graduated from Peking University in 1984 and received his Ph.D. degree at the University of Leeds in applied mathematics in 1989. Prof.Tang is currently the Vice President and Chair Professor of Mathematics of Southern University of Science and Technology.From 1990 to1998, he was a faculty member of Department of Mathematics at Simon Fraser University. He joined Hong Kong Baptist University in 1999, serving as Associate Professor (1999-2001) and Professor (2001-2015) of Mathematics. He served one term as President of the East Asia SIAM section. From 2008 to 2012, he served as the President of the Hong Kong Mathematical Society.
Prof. Tang’sresearch interests include computational fluid dynamics, scientific computation and numerical solution of partial differential equations. In recent years, his research has mainly focused on uncertainty quantification, high-order methods and numerical analysis. He has made many significant research achievements to the development of spectral & high order methods and adaptive methods. Prof. Tang was awarded the Leslie Fox Prize for numerical analysis in 1988 and the Feng Kang Prize for scientific computing in 2003. He was named Distinguished Visiting Professor by Academy of Mathematics and System Sciences (AMSS) of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2005. He won the Second ClassPrize of National Natural Science Award in 2014. He was elected as a fellow of Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and AmericanMathematical Society (AMS) in 2012 and 2017, respectively. In 2017, Professor Tang was elected as academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He was an invited speaker of ICM in 2018.
