Academic Qualifications

Senior Non-Resident Fellow of Chao Kuang Piu College

Random Matrices, EurAsia

Random Matrices, EurAsia,
July 28-31, 2017, School of Mathematical Sciences,
Fudan University, Shanghai, PR China

Through the very generous support of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Macau, Random Matrices EurAsia 2016 was launched at the University. Mathematicians, statisticians, mathematical physicist, from all over were invited and spoke at this meeting.

Prof Fan and I thought that it would be good idea to continue Random Matrices EurAsia 2017 at the School of Mathematical Science, Fudan University. The goal of Random Matrices, EurAsia is to put together experts in all fields of mathematicians, statisticians world-wide, and to promote academic communication and cooperation between Chinese mathematicians and overseas outstanding scholars.

The School of Mathematical Science (SMS) of Fudan University, one of the most distinguished and active institutions of mathematics in China. The SMS consists of five Departments, i.e., Departments of Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Information & Computing Sciences, Mathematical Finance & Control Theory, and Probability, Statistics and Actuarial Sciences, the Institute of Mathematics and Shanghai Center for Mathematical Sciences. Now, the SMS has approximately 100 permanent faculty members, among which 4 academicians of Chinese Academy of Sciences, 48 are professors and 40 are associate professors with broad research interests in the major fields of contemporary pure and applied mathematics.
