## Course equivalency request

Starting from 5/8/2021, I**no longer**serve as the course equivalency advisor for non-math majors. Please check https://math.berkeley.edu/courses/course-equivalency for updates on where to go during the 2021-2022 academic year. Course Equivalency Advising typically begins the second week of the next semester.

## News

- I co-organize the workshop on Quantum Numerical Linear Algebra January 24-28, 2022 IPAM
- I co-organize the semester long program March 7-June 10, 2022 Advancing Quantum Mechanics with Mathematics and Statistics, IPAM
- I co-organize the Applied Math Seminar with Suncica Canic, Di Fang and Per-Olof Persson this year. Please contact any of the organizers if you are interested in giving a talk.
- I organize a Student Applied Math Seminar every semester (a.k.a. 290 seminar), on quantum many-body related topics. Please contact me if you are interested in participation or giving a talk.

## Biosketch

*I try to be a quantum chemist in disguise in the Department of Mathematics, but it appears that I am definitely an applied mathematician (period) in the eyes of quantum chemists.*

My research focuses on the development of efficient and accurate numerical methods for electronic structure calculations, with broad applications in quantum chemistry, quantum physics and materials science. I am now an associate professor of the Department of Mathematics at UC Berkeley, a faculty scientist at Berkeley Labâ€™s Mathematics Group within the Computational Research Division, and a mathematician within Berkeley Lab's Center for Advanced Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA), and a member of the Challenge Institute of Quantum Computation (CIQC) at Berkeley. I am very fortunate to have received the Sloan Research Fellowship (2015), the National Science Foundation CAREER award (2017), the Department of Energy Early Career award (2017), the (inaugural) SIAM Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) early career award (2017), the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) (2019), and the ACM Gordon Bell prize (Team) (2020).
