Chuntian Wang

I am currently a Hedrick Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, University of California, Los Angeles. My mentor is Prof. Andrea Bertozzi. I was a Postdoctoral Fellow and residence in Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Fall 2015, under the mentoring of Professor Andrea Montanari, and completed a doctorate from Department of Mathematics, Indiana University Bloomington in May 2015, under the supervision of Professors Roger Temam and Nathan Glatt-Holtz.

1. The deterministic and stochastic Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation. Basic mathematical theories were established for the initial-boundary value problem.

2. Numerical analysis for stochastic geophysical fluid models. A time discrete approximation was constructed for the stochastic primitive equations of the atmosphere and oceans.

Stochastic-statistical models of criminal behavior. Statistical agent-based models for residential burglary were improved and analyzed with the application of probability, partial differential equations and stochastic analysis.
