EXPERIENCE: Miami University



Dr. Zheng Yang joined SCUPI in 2018 after serving as a visiting Assistant Professor at Miami University of Ohio. His research interests include commutative algebra and homological algebra, in particular, understanding of the behavior of infinite free resolutions over commutative Noetherian local rings. His current research interests also span various topics from math education, data science and interdisciplinary science. Dr. Yang is the PI for the NSFC Youth Fund project and currently also participates several provincial scientific research projects.
