Assistant Professor Jing Wang to join faculty in August 2018


Jing Wang will join the Department of Mathematics faculty as a new tenure-track assistant professor beginning August 2018.  Jing received her PhD degree in Mathematics from Purdue University in 2014 under the guidance of Professor Fabrice Baudoin. She spent one year at the IMA (Institute for Mathematics and its Applications) at the University of Minnesota as a postdoctoral fellow.  Since 2015, Jing has been a J. L. Doob research assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Dr. Wang’s research interests lie in the intersection of probability, analysis, and differential geometry. She studies degenerate diffusion processes and the underlying (sub-Riemannian) geometric structure. Research topics include limiting behaviors of degenerate diffusion processes, heat kernel estimates, and heat content asymptotics for domains in sub-Riemannian manifolds. Dr. Wang is also interested in applications of her results in math finance and machine learning.

During her spare time, Jing enjoys dancing, cooking, and traveling.
