for his publication in Nonlinear Processes in Geophysics: "Lagrangian transport and chaos in the near wake of the flow around an obstacle: a numerical implementation of lobe dynamics "


Dr. Jinqiao Duan is a faculty member in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Clemson University, USA. He earned his Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics at Cornell University in 1993 (advisor: Philip Holmes). He had done postdoctoral work in dynamical systems methods for geophysical flows with Steve Wiggins at California Institute of Technology during 1993-1995. He has been a faculty member at Clemson University since 1995. His undergraduate study in computational and applied mathematics was at Wuhan University, China.

Dr. Duanís research interests are nonlinear dynamical systems, partial differential equations and stochastic dynamics with applications to geophysical flows. He has published over 30 papers in scientific journals.
