Justin W.L. Wan

Canada Research Chair in Scientific Computing

Full Professor, BSc (Hong Kong, 92), MA (UCLA, 95), PhD (UCLA, 98).

I am a faculty member of the SciCom group in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at University of Waterloo. I received my PhD degree from the Applied Math Program in the Department of Mathematics, UCLA. My PhD advisor was Prof. Tony Chan. After graduation, I joined the Scientific Computing/Computational Mathematics (SCCM) Program, Stanford University as a Forsythe Fellow (acting assistant professor). My postdoctoral advisors were Prof. Gene Golub, and Prof. Andrew Stuart.

Research Interests

My research is generally in the area of scientific computing. My research interests include numerical solutions of partial differential equations, iterative methods, and multigrid preconditioning with applications in medical image registration, cell image segmentation, tracking of cell images, computational finance, and parallel computation on high performance platforms.
