Dr. Qi Han


Dr. Han received his undergraduate degree and first Ph.D. in pure mathematics from Shandong University, China in 2008, and his second Ph.D. from University of Houston in theoretical applied mathematics in 2012 under the guidance of Professor Giles Auchmuty. He held a one-year lecturer position at University of Houston and a three-year postdoctoral position at Worcester Polytechnic Institute before joining TAMU–SA as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics in 2016.  In addition, he has held short term visiting positions at Osaka City University, Japan, the Fields Institute in Toronto, Canada, and the Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications, Minneapolis, MN, amongst others. 

Dr. Han has conducted mathematical research in several areas including Sobolev spaces and partial differential equations, complex analyses and analytic number theory (L-functions and functional Diophantine equations etc.). He has published papers recently in journals such as Applied Mathematics and Optimization, Bollettino dell'Unione Matematica Italiana, Bulletin des Sciences Mathématiques, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, and Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Section A: Mathematics etc.

Dr. Han has taught a range of courses from finite mathematics, the calculus sequence and differential equations, matrices and linear algebra to calculus of variations, and advanced statistics. He has also served as an advisor/mentor for the 2015 William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition - WPI Team. Dr. Han holds the belief that everyone can learn mathematics. He is devoted to the inspiration and interaction with students, and is particularly interested in collaboration with other faculty members for undergraduate research projects and hosting a NSF sponsored Research Experiences for Undergraduates.
