Weimin Han, professor, and chair of the mathematics department is among 39 mathematicians from around the world who have been named one of the American Mathematical Society Fellows for 2023.
This is a high honor from a professional society dedicated to advancing research and connecting the global mathematical community.
“I felt greatly honored with the designation and was very pleased that my research efforts were recognized by the AMS,” Han says.
Han specializes in research in the field of interdisciplinary applied mathematics. He was recognized by the association for his contributions to numerical methods and analysis of non-smooth problems in mechanics and engineering.
Han has been teaching at Iowa since 1991, when he started as an assistant professor. He says he incorporates his research into his courses to enable his students to think more deeply about mathematical topics.
“Since coming to the UI, I have developed or co-developed a couple of math courses in my research area and will continue incorporating research into my teaching in the future,” he explains.
