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.

My research interests consist of three directions. Mainly, (1) Deterministic and Stochastic Zakharov-Kuznetsov (ZK) Equation. Basic mathematical theories were established for the

deterministic and stochastic ZK equation in a bounded domain. And (2) Stochastic-Statistical Models of Criminal Behavior. Statistical agent-based models for residential burglary were

modified and analyzed with the application of statistics and stochastic analysis. Also (3) Numerical Analysis for the Stochastic Geophysical Fluid Models. A time discrete approximation was

constructed for the stochastic primitive equations of the atmosphere and oceans.
