Professor Zhongqiang Zhang Receives Funding from Department of Defense


School of Arts & Sciences

​Zhongqiang Zhang, assistant professor of mathematical sciences, has been given an award in the amount of $113,932 from the Department of Defense's Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) in coordination with the Army Research Office (ARO) for the project “Analysis of fractional advection-reaction-diffusion equations on bounded domains.” This project is a sub award from Brown University. Under this project, Zhang will perform mathematical analysis and simulations to address anomalous transport in reactive systems of importance to combustion, functional microfluidics and materials, and systems biology. In particular, he will establish basis understanding of deterministic and stochastic fractional advection-diffusion-reaction on bounded domains and develop efficient simulation methods.
