Fayetteville, N.C. (August 23, 2023) - Fayetteville State University math professor Dr. Zhenlu Cui is making a remarkable impact at the 10th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) held at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan from August 20-25, 2023. His engagement in the ICIAM congress is extensive and diverse: serving as session chair and presenting both an oral talk and a poster presentation. He has also contributed to the congress by reviewing three papers.
ICIAM is an organization that brings together various applied mathematics societies worldwide and societies with a strong interest in industrial or applied mathematics. The congresses, held every four years, are overseen by the ICIAM Council, symbolizing significant milestones in the progress of applied mathematics. One of the notable highlights of each congress is the awarding of six scientific prizes in applied mathematics, celebrating remarkable contributions to the field.
At this congress, the prodigious American mathematician, Dr. Leslie Greengard from the Courant Institute, received the ICIAM Pioneer Prize for his groundbreaking work on fast algorithms. Dr. Greengard's revolutionary work in fast algorithms has earned him memberships in the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Dr. Cui's research orbits the realm of applied mathematics with a specific focus on developing sophisticated multiscale models and computational methods to study soft matter physics and biological physics. Over the years, he has taken on editorial roles for international applied mathematics journals, served on committees for international soft matter conferences, and acted as a reviewer for various distinguished scientific journals such as Nature Communications, International Journal of Molecular Sciences, and Polymers, etc.
Dr. Cui would like to express his heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Burton, the provost’s office, and the College of Health, Science & Technology for their support in attending the congress.
