Shixu Meng

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications of the University of Minnesota. Currently I work with Prof. Bojan Guzina from the Department of Civil Engineering at Minnesota . I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Fioralba Cakoni and Prof. David Colton at the University of Delaware in 2016. Part of my thesis was conducted under the supervision of Prof. Houssem Haddar at Ecole Polytechnique in France.

My research lies in the interdisciplinary area of applied mathematics, analysis and computational mathematics. In particular, I work on scattering and inverse scattering for acoustic, electromagnetic, and elastic waves in various media. My research can be summarized as follows (see Research for more details):

1) Inverse problems in wave propagation: non-destructive testing of complex media, target detection and localization, applications in geophysical exploration.

2) Eigenvalues in inverse scattering: analysis and computation of non-selfadjoint eigenvalue problems, applications in imaging.

3) Effective properties in periodic and random media: dispersion relation, homogenization, inverse problems.
