Brief Biography

TECHNOLOGY SKILLS • I know the computer languages FORTRAN, Pascal, C/C++, Java, JavaScript, Html, and Visual Basic. I can teach many mathematics courses and computer science courses in different levels. • I enjoy Internet programming. I have developed online teaching and research materials including video clips, Java programs, PowerPoint files, WeBWorK, and other documents, for both upper and lower level courses. • I hold the professional Sun Microsystems Certified Java Programmer license. This professional development may help me to do my teaching and research work better. SERVICES • I have served on many university-wide and departmental committees at UW-Stout such as Faculty Senate, Promotion Committees, Hiring Committees, Personnel Policies Committee, Planning and Review Committee, Educational Activities Committee, and many departmental committees. I advise 6 to10 students with their academic program schedule every year. (Omit the details.) • Currently, I serve on CSTEM Faculty Senate Professorship Committee and UW-Stout Positive Action, Ethics and Competition Review Committee.

Teaching Interests: I can teach mathematics all levels, statistics (stat-130), computer science courses algorithms, algorithm complexity, NP-complete, Java, C, etc.

Research Interests: numerical analysis graph theory enhancing teaching quality by combining the features of higher education from both west and east world

Professional Interests: developing international educational programs including exchanging students and scholars, recruiting students as 2+2 or 1+3 types. visiting scholar -- research report and teaching activities
