About me

I am an assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics, City University of Hong Kong. I am interested in developing efficient numerical schemes for partial differential equations. In particular, I have developed polygonal staggered discontinuous Galerkin methods for various PDEs such as Brinkman equations, Navier-Stokes equations and Darcy-Forchheimer equations and so on. A full publication list is also available at google scholar. If you are interested in my research, please feel free to contact me (email:linazha@cityu.edu.hk) for further discussions and/or collaborations.
