Peking University November 2, 2022:
Hu Kaibo, a PKU alumnus, has been awarded the SIAM Early Career Prize in Computational Science and Engineering for his "contributions to the finite element exterior calculus, particularly structure-preserving numerical algorithms for magnetohydrodynamics,” according to a news release issued by Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Hu, who received his doctoral degree at Peking University in 2017 and currently serves as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Oxford University, has been working on numerical analysis and Partial differential equations (PDEs), in particular, structure-preserving methods and finite element exterior calculus.
Dr Hu has received several awards and scholarships, including the EASIAM (East Asia section of SIAM) Student Paper Prize in 2016, the New World Mathematics Award in 2017, and the Hooke Research Fellowship in 2020.
He will be awarded the prize at the 2022 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE23), in Spring 2023 in Amsterdam, where he will give a plenary lecture, according to SIAM.
Founded in 2016, the biannual prize is given to an outstanding early career researcher whose work makes a significant research contribution to the development and use of mathematical and computational tools and methods for the solution of science and engineering problems.
Congratulations to Hu Kaibo on winning the SIAM Early Career Prize!
