My research is interdisciplinary in science and engineering, ranging from numerical methods (finite difference, finite element, finite volume, artificial neural network) for solving partial differential equations including fractional-order PDEs to numerical heat transfer, micro/nano heat transfer, and thermal deformation, bio-heat transfer, quantum physics, computational fluid dynamics, and numerical simulations for studying the bio-effect of electromagnetic waves, hydrogen-metal reactions for hydrogen storage, DNA sequencing, and micro-fabrications such as X-ray lithography, laser chemical vapor deposition, and melt crystallization.
