Biography

Dr. Pengtao Sun is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at University of Nevada Las Vegas. Dr. Sun obtained his PhD from Institute of Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and his Master and Bachelor degree from Shandong University. Before joining UNLV in 2007, he worked as Postdoctoral Fellow, Research Associate, and Assistant Professor at various places including Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Pennsylvania State University, and Simon Fraser University.

Dr. Pengtao Sun's primary research fields are Numerical Solutions of Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Finite Element Method, Finite Volume Method, Fast Solver, and Scientific and Engineering Computing with applications to solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, fluid-structure interaction, hydrodynamics, hemodynamics, aerodynamics, astrophysics, electro-hydrodynamics, fuel cell dynamics, and etc. Dr. Sun's research has been continuously supported by NSF since 2009.

Dr. Pengtao Sun's recent research interests focus on the modeling and numerical studies of fluid and structure interaction problems, including Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) method and Fictitious Domain method,  modeling and efficient numerical methodologies of fuel cell dynamics, solar cell dynamics, lithium battery and other types of clean energy technologies. Dr. Sun is also accomplished in anisotropic & isotropic adaptive finite element method, phase field method, and domain decomposition method.
